HC Deb 23 November 1960 vol 630 c104W
50. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware of the general complaints that the present postal charges are too high; and if he will make a detailed statement on the cost of the transport and delivery of letters, indicating when the present postage rates will be reduced, and to what extent.

Miss Pike

I am not aware of any general complaint that postal charges are too high. The cost of the Postal Service is shown in the Post Office Report and Commercial Accounts for 1959–1960 (Cmd. 1206). I have no statement to make about postage rates.
