PRICE PE­NALISES

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

THE de­ci­sion to in­tro­duce a two-tier sys­tem for postage will in­crease the use of in­ter­net and mo­bile phone com­mu­ni­ca­tion.

The nearly 43 per cent in­crease in the fast mail ser­vice will pe­nalise those less able to pay and those who be­cause of age are not com­puter lit­er­ate.

The Govern­ment is spruik­ing in­no­va­tion. Maybe it should al­low some in­no­va­tion and ini­tia­tive by in­creas­ing the num­ber of con­ces­sion stamps avail­able to "My Post" card­hold­ers from 50 to 100.

Now the avail­able 50 stamps are used rapidly on other cards dur­ing the year. TOM DIXON, Nol­la­mara.
