§ MR. GEORGE WHITE (Norfolk, N.W.)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he is aware that it has been of frequent occurrence during months past for the second day mail from the Midlands to Norwich and some parts of the Eastern Counties to be delivered several hours late, to the inconvenience of the traders of those districts; and whether he will take steps to prevent this in future.
§ MR. AUSTEN CHAMBERLAIN
Inquiry shall be made respecting the alleged delay in the delivery at Norwich and other places in the Eastern Counties of the day mail from the Midlands, and an answer sent to the hon. Member as soon as possible.
