HC Deb 27 March 1962 vol 656 c97W
1. Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu

asked the Postmaster-General if, for the future, he will give priority in the weeks before Christmas to business and other mail paying the full rate.

Miss Pike

With the enormous amount of mail to be dealt with at Christmas-time, it would be impracticable to separate all fully paid mail from the rest and give it priority at all stages. But we shall continue, wherever practicable, to give preference to fully paid business mail at this time.
