HC Deb 22 May 1969 vol 784 c121W
74. Mr. Gresham Cooke

asked the Postmaster-General whether, in view of the fact that the current usage of 5d. stamps is now only 30 per cent. of the whole, he will now review the proportion of 4d. as compared with 5d. stamps in the 10s. stamp book.

Mr. Stonehouse

Our checks indicate that private correspondents use the first class service for about 40 per cent. of their mail; and the 10s. stamp book is provided mainly for their use. I am, however, currently reviewing the makeup of all stamp books.
