asked the Assistant Postmaster-General what are the latest available figures for losses through theft in the parcel post and the compensation paid; and how they compare with the immediately preceding figures.

Statistics relating to claims for loss (including theft) paid in the years 1943–44 and 1944–45 are as follows. I regret that separate figures for losses through theft are not available.

I cannot add anything to what I said on this subject in my Budget Speech.
