§ Mr. Webster
asked the Postmaster-General what is the revised scale of special messenger charges; when it was authorised by him; and whether it was referred to the National Board for Prices and Incomes.
§ Mr. Edward Short
The current scale of charges for special messenger services is as follows:—
Description of Service Charges 1. Express by special messenger all the way. 3s. per mile 2. Express from office of delivery at request of addressee. 3s. per mile 3. Special Delivery by messenger from delivery office at sender's request. 3s. per packet 4. Railex 20s. per packet
These charges were introduced by my predecessor on the 17th May, 1965. They were not referred to the National Board for Prices and Incomes.
