§ Mr. Murphy
asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, in light of increased postal charges, what provision he is prepared to make to enable hon. Members of Parliament to send less urgent constituency mail by second-class post.
§ Mr. St. John-Stevas
There would be no saving to public funds if second-class prepaid envelopes were provided for hon. Members, because, under the Post Office system, the charge for the purchase of envelopes is based on the size of the envelope, and the charge is the same for both classes of delivery.
