HC Deb 25 January 1961 vol 633 c24W
63. Wing Commander Bullus

asked the Postmaster-General if he can now state when the new recorded delivery service is to start; and whether his plans for it are on the same lines as those previously announced.

Miss Pike

The service will start on 1st February, 1961, on the lines previously announced by me. A fee of 6d. an item will be payable in addition to the ordinary postage, and the service will provide a cheaper alternative to the inland registration service for articles such as documents where it is more important to be able to prove delivery than to secure compensation in case of loss.
