Mr. Bertrand (Laurier):

Only first-class mail can be carried by plane at the four-cent rate. Any franked letters which are first-class mail are carried with similar mail. If they are letters containing printed matter, they are not first-class mail, and have to be carried by surface transportation unless the appropriate stamps are affixed.
