HC Deb 14 July 1915 vol 73 c834
60. Mr. WARDLE

asked the Postmaster-General if his attention has been called to the practice of conveying mail bags by road which could conveniently be carried by railway and motor transport drivers so employed released for postal or Army ser vice; whether a road motor van leaves Bath daily at 10.30 p.m. for London for conveyance of mails which might be sent by the 12.40 a.m. or the 3.45 a.m. trains without loss or inconvenience; and whether he proposes to take any action in the matter?


Motor mail vans and their drivers will be released for war work as opportunities occur. I am not at present in a position to say whether it would be practicable to discontinue the motor service between Bath and London.
