HC Deb 18 December 1958 vol 597 c209W
32. Mr. Gough

asked the Postmaster-General what are the prospects of being able to introduce a cheap penny commercial rate for postage for circulars; and if he will consider the Post Office accepting for delivery unaddressed circulars to be delivered to every household with a letter box.

Mr. Marples

To introduce a penny rate for circulars would involve heavy financial loss, which I cannot contemplate. The point raised in the second part of the Question will be considered, but I cannot be optimistic about the outcome.
