§ 79. Mr. Hunter
asked the Postmaster-General how many automatic machines have been installed outside post offices to enable the general public to purchase threepenny stamps; and what is the approximate number he will install this year for that purpose.
§ Mr. Bevins
About 600 machines selling 3d. stamps have now been supplied to post offices and 150 more are 49W on their way. I expect to have a total of 1,800 machines outside post offices by the end of this year.
