HC Deb 19 December 1968 vol 775 c432W
44. Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Postmaster-General if he will consider, in view of the increased charges for parcel post, taking steps to introduce specially reduced rates for registered charitable purposes.

Mr. Stonehouse

Parcel post charges have not been increased since 1966. I have every sympathy with charities, but concessionary charges, the cost of which would have to be borne by other users, are not appropriate.
