§ Dr. A. Thompson

§ Mr. Gourlay
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will extend the use of officially-franked envelopes to hon. Members in corresponding with the official correspondents of local authorities.
§ Mr. W. Hamilton
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he will now allow hon. Members to use official franked envelopes in dealing with correspondence with local authorities within their area.

No. The extension of the existing concession would entail additional expenditure by the Exchequer which I could not accept.
