§ Mr. David Adams
asked the Postmaster-General when airgraph letters may be sent from this country to India?
§ Mr. Grimston
The airgraph service is now available for messages to members of H.M. Forces and to civilians in India, Ceylon, and Seychelles. In addition, airgraphs may now be sent to civilians as well as to members of the Forces in Egypt, Palestine, Transjordan, Cyprus, the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan, Aden and British Somaliland. The charge for airgraphs addressed to civil addressees is 8d.; for airgraphs addressed to the Forces the existing rate of 3d. remains unchanged. The 3d. rate will apply also to messages for the personnel of merchant ships, including those on ordinary commercial service, calling at ports in the countries concerned.
