HC Deb 23 April 1968 vol 763 c35W
Mr. MacArthur

asked the Postmaster General if he will introduce a lower postage rate for newspapers delivered locally in rural areas by sub-post offices operated by the local newsagent.

Mr. Mason

No. We have standard rates of postage as between rural and urban areas and I believe that the rural areas would be the losers in the end if we departed from this principle. There is already a concessionary tariff for newspapers generally.
