HC Deb 15 June 1910 vol 17 cc1302-3

asked the Under-Secretary for the Colonies whether he was aware that various small improvements lately introduced in the working of the Port-of-spain post office have been of little use because their introduction has not been made known; whether he will take steps to remedy this omission on the part of the local officials; whether it has come to his knowledge that the pillarboxes of Port-of-Spain are largely of the nature of traps for the unwary, a letter posted in one of them at 11 a.m. not being generally delivered till the next day; and, if not, will he inquire into the matter?

Colonel SEELY

The Secretary of State has received no information regarding the matters to which my hon. Friend refers, but he has no doubt that any representations which may be made to the Colonial Post Office will receive attention, and that any defects which may exist will, if possible, be remedied.
