Commonwealth Penny Postage. TEN MONTHS' EXPERIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 21 February 1912

Commonwealth Fenny Postage. TEN lMONTHS' EXPERIENCE. At the end of this month penny postage within the Commonwealth will have been iu operation for 10 months, and the postal authorities have since last May, when the system was inaugurated, kept in close touch with the financial aspect of the <jucs tion. It was anticipated that peuny postage would at the start mean a loss of £400,000 per year. This was considered to be a conservative estimate, ami £-150,000 had been eel down by some authorities as nearer to the mailt From figures already in the hands of the postal authorities it would seem that Ili«s lower estimate wil { prove very nearly correct. There are two months to go still, but fioai figures that are already available the first year's loss will be within £20,000 rue way or the other of £•100,000. With each succeeding year this deficit will, according to the authorities, become leas and lees, through the increased Lusintsa that will result from cheap post age.
