asked the Postmaster-General, in view of present needs for economy in man-power, why his Department continues to urge the public to send greetings telegrams?

The Post Office has given no publicity urging the use of the greetings telegram service since the war began.

Is my hon. Friend aware that on the books of stamps on sale at this moment in this House there appear on the first page the words, "Send a Greetings Telegram"?

No, Sir, but we are using up old stock here, and I think in view of that this particular point might be overlooked.
