§ 63. Mr. Ron Lewis
asked the Postmaster-General if he will make a statement on his recent visit to Japan.
§ Mr. Benn
Yes. The purpose of the visit was to study the organisation and operation of the Japanese postal, telecommunications and broadcasting services and to discuss problems of mutual concern with senior members of those services.90W
Within the limited duration of the visit many useful results were achieved. Not only was a very wide field of current issues discussed and invaluable information on Japanese practices obtained, but the way was paved for follow-up visits at official level to study particular aspects where we might be able to benefit from Japanese experience.
