asked the Postmaster-General if he will make a statement about the shortage of registered envelopes.

It has for some time been difficult to meet the demand for registered letter envelopes, which is about double what it was before the war, and the fuel crisis resulted in a serious fall in output which is only now being overtaken. Everything practicable is being done by my Department and the contractors to overcome the present shortage, and I am hopeful that the position will be satisfactory within the next few weeks.

Is the Minister aware that the position has improved since I put down this Question?
