HC Deb 01 June 1960 vol 624 cc138-9W
Mr. Mason

asked the Postmaster-General if he will make fresh representations to the football pools promoters with a view to obtaining a more even weekly distribution of pools coupons dispatched through the post and thereby effecting a more efficient working method in the postal sorting offices.

Miss Pike

Posting arrangements for pool coupons must have regard to the needs both of the promoters and the Post Office, and the present arrangements, evolved after full consultation, take these into account. I do not, therefore, consider fresh representations necessary at the present time.
