MISCELLANEOUS NOTICES.

INTERNATIONAL TELEGRAM RATES.

NEW CHARGES ON 1ST JULY, 1950.

The International Telegraph and Telephone Conference held at Paris in 1949
decided upon important changes in the rate structure of international telegrams
to places outside Europe to take effect on the 1st July, 1950.
The Post Office now announces the following changes to take place on the 1st
July, 1950 :-
(1) The charges for ordinary telegrams to places outside Europe will, in
general, be reduced to about 75% of their present level; there are
certain exceptions to this rule because in some cases the Administration
which receives the telegram requires a payment which exceeds 75% of
the existing charge.
The rate to Canada and USA will be a flat rate of 8d. per word as
against the existing zonal rates of 9d. and 10d. Other examples of the
new rates are :-
Present Rate New Rate
British W est Indies ...... ...... ...... ...... ...... 1. Od. 0. 9d.
More distant parts of British Commonwealth...... 1. 3d. 1. Od.
Iraq ................. .... ...... ...... 1. 8d. 1. 3d.
Argentine and Chile ...... ...... ...... ...... ... 2. Id. 1. 7d.
Japan ...... ...... ..... ...... ...... 2. 9d. 2. Id.
(2) The charges for urgent telegrams will be double the new charges for
ordinary telegrams and about 75% of the present charges for urgent
telegrams.
(3) The separate rates for code (CDE) telegrams will be abolished.
(4) The deferred service will be abolished.
(5) The charges per word for letter telegrams will be 50% of the new
charges for ordinary telegrams; the minimum charge will be based on
22 words instead of 25.
(6) The charges per word for Commonwealth social telegrams (GLT) will
also be 50% of the new charges for ordinary telegrams; the minimum
charge will be based on 11 words instead of 13. Registered abbreviated
addresses will be allowed in these telegrams.
(7) A concession in the counting of words in telegrams containing ordinary
words, code words and/or cypher groups, has been made whereby the
ordinary words will be counted at the rate of 15 letters to a word,
instead of 5 letters as previously.
The object of the changes is to simplify the services and not to increase the
revenues of the operating administrations and companies.
The new charges will be shown in the revised edition of the Post Office Guide
which will be available about the end of June. In the meantime information can
be obtained from the Post Office Cable and Wireless offices, from most postal
telegraph offices and from the offices of the telegraph companies.
