HC Deb 16 March 1891 vol 351 c1055
MR. BURT (Morpeth)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether his attention has been called to the inconvenience caused to Mr. Tweedy, farmer, and others, of Heighly Farm, Morpeth, through the non-delivery of letters; and whether anything can be done to remedy the grievances complained of?

*THE POSTMASTER GENERAL (Mr. RAIKES,) Cambridge University

I quite appreciate the inconvenience to which the hon. Member calls attention. But the postal service in the locality is already carried on at a heavy loss, and I should scarcely be warranted in effecting improvements at still further outlay. If the persons immediately concerned would arrange to have their letters taken charge of at a house within the official delivery, some, at least, of the inconvenience now felt would be remedied.
