§ 83. Sir GEORGE DOUGHTY
asked the Postmaster-General whether the negotiations between the British and French Governments have resulted in an agreement for cheaper postal exchange between the two countries; whether the rate of postage on letters is to be reduced from 2½d. to l½d.; and, if so, at what date is such reform to commence?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
Negotiations are still proceeding with the French Post Office with a view to a reduction in the rates of postage on parcels exchanged between the two countries, and I hope shortly to bring the new rates into force. I am not in a position to give any particulars as regards new rates for postage of letters.
