asked Her Majesty's Government:

What progress has been made towards harmonisation of postal rates between member states of the European Communities in accordance with the recommendation of the Commission in 1979.

The Minister of State for Defence Procurement (Viscount Trenchard)

My Lords, no further progress has been made by any Community country on the question of applying inland postal rates to certain mail between member states since the reply given by my noble friend Lord Gowrie on 25th June 1981.
