Invoices and other postal matter paid for at the halfpenny rate are only liable to be held over if posted late in the afternoon or during the evening. And if they are prepaid a penny they are treated as ordinary letters. Considerable economies and other public advantages are effected by these arrangements and as their abandonment would involve carrying such matter below cost, my right hon. Friend does not consider that an alteration would be desirable.
Is the hon. Member aware that orders as well as unimportant circulars are carried by the cheaper stamp, and will he at an early date give the matter further consideration?
