§ MR. LAMBERT
I beg to ask the Postmaster General if he will consider 1327 the advisability of instituting a cheap parcels post for perishable agricultural products.
§ MR. AUSTEN CHAMBERLAIN
The question of instituting a special parcel post for agricultural products has been considered on more than one occasion; but the difficulties surrounding it are so great that it has not hitherto been found possible to adopt any such scheme. This is, however, one of the questions which I propose to examine afresh as soon as I have leisure to do so.
