§ MR. J. A. PEASE (Essex, Saffron Walden)
To ask the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that there is no second delivery of letters in the parishes of Pebmarsh, Lamarsh, and Alphamstone in Essex, whilst the neighbouring parishes possess such a delivery; and whether, seeing that these parishes are within fifty miles of the General Post Office, and in view of the commercial needs of the population, he will endeavour to establish a second delivery and thus enable them to receive the London daily newspapers on the day of issue.
(Answered by Mr. Austen Chamberlain.) I have recently given careful consideration to the question of affording a second delivery of letters at Pebmarsh, Lamarsh, and Alphamstone, but I regret to find that the circumstances do not warrant the additional expense involved.
