HC Deb 09 February 1978 vol 943 c640W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Industry, in view of the fact that the Post Office is again to raise its postal charges by ½ penny per letter in order to raise a further £50 million per annum, and in view of its profits, the fall in the inflationary spiral and the need to help prices down, he will take steps to stop these increases; and to what extent such increases will raise the cost of living.

Mr. Les Huckfield

No such proposition has been made by the Post Office.
