HC Deb 01 May 1968 vol 763 c225W
Dr. John Dunwoody

asked the Postmaster-General by what means the Post Office will easily distinguish between first and second class mail requiring the same postal fee when the new postal rates are introduced.

Mr. Mason

The same charge for first and second-class packets of different weight will occur at only three of the higher weight steps. In each case the second-class packet will be at least 50 per cent. heavier than the first-class.
