HC Deb 03 November 1966 vol 735 cc168-9W
Mr. Clark Hutchison

asked the Lord President of the Council why hon. Members, in view of the saving in material, cannot now obtain from the stationery store envelopes eight and five-twelfths inches long by three and seven-twelfths inches deep in addition to those of eight and seven-twelfths inches in length and four and two-thirds inches deep.

Mr. Crossman

The present size of envelopes supplied to hon. Members was fixed as the result of a recommendation of the Select Committee on Publications and Debates Reports in Session 1963–64 in response to a request by the Post Office for standardisation of sizes to help with the mechanisation of postal work. The Select Committee on House of Commons (Services) are at present considering alterations and improvements in the range, quality and style of stationery supplied to Members.
