HC Deb 27 September 1909 vol 11 cc1059-60W
Captain MURRAY

asked the Postmaster-General whether it is proposed to discontinue the sale of foolscap penny postage envelopes>


The 1d. embossed envelopes of "foolscap" size were introduced in 1903, but they met with very little demand, and indeed the initial stock was not exhausted until May last. The sale of these envelopes was clearly not sufficient to justify a further issue, and I decided to withdraw them. Two other sizes of 1d. envelopes and two sizes of ½d. envelopes are issued by the Post Office, and have a very large sale.
