asked the Post master-General whether he is aware that the printing and allied trades, which recently sent a deputation to him on the question of the adverse effect on their industry of the present postal rates, are anxious to know the decision of the Cabinet on the proposed revision of rates; and whether he will announce that decision before Parliament rises for the Easter Recess?
I am aware of the anxiety of the printing and allied trades in this matter. The question of the re- duction of rates is under consideration by the Government, and I am not in a position to make an announcement on the subject.
In view of that answer, I beg to give the right hon. Gentleman notice that I will call attention to this matter on the Motion for the Adjournment to-morrow.
