Alert me about debates like this
asked the Postmaster-General whether the volume of business of his Department has been adversely affected by the recent increases in postal rates; and, if so, to what extent?
Yes, Sir: but present indications are that the reduction in postal business is likely to prove to be rather less than was allowed for in the Budget estimate of postal revenue.
Can the Minister give some indication as to whether the volume has been decreased irrespective of the increased revenue that comes from increased rates?
Yes, Sir. I have indicated that the volume has decreased.
