64. Wing Commander Bullus

asked the Postmaster-General the numbers of letters and of parcels dealt with by the Post Office during the Christmas period.

Miss Pike

It is estimated that 957 million letters and cards were dealt with in the busy period from 13th December to 2nd January, an increase of about 3.9 per cent. over the previous year. No reliable estimate can be given for letter packets and parcels, but the figures were probably about 140 millions and 30 millions respectively.
