HC Deb 08 July 1974 vol 876 c337W
Mr. Tim Renton

asked the Minister for the Civil Service if he will make it the practice of Government Departments to transmit official mail by second-class post except in cases when speed is genuinely required.

Mr. Robert Sheldon

It is already the practice of Departments to use the second-class post for all mail except in cases when they judge that there is a clear and defensible need to use the first-class service.
