§ Mr. A. Lewis
asked the Postmaster-General whether he will give the annual percentage rise or fall since October, 1951 in the charges made to the general public for all services and items supplies by the General Post Office, taking 100 as the basis for the cost of each unit or service in October 1951.
§ Mr. Bevins
I estimate that Post Office charges as a whole rose in the twelve years beginning October 1951 by an average of about 4 per cent. net per annum.
