HC Deb 01 February 1971 vol 810 c256W
63. Mrs. Sally Oppenheim

asked the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications if, in view of the postal strike, he will give a general direction to the Post Office to arrange for an extension of time during which the current rates of postage will apply.

Mr. Chataway

No. Since the Union of Post Office Workers' strike, whatever its final outcome, can only worsen postal finances, the need for the tariff increases already agreed is now greater than ever.
