HC Deb 02 November 1916 vol 86 cc1812-3

asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware that many complaints are being made about the? difficulty of getting post parcels, letters, and newspapers delivered to the forces in Mesopotamia; that parcels not delivered are seldom returned to the senders; and if he will take steps to put this service upon a satisfactory footing?

Mr. C. ROBERTS (Comptroller of the Household)

I have been asked by the Secretary of State, who had to leave, to reply. I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to the hon. Member for the Bridgeton Division of Glasgow on the 26th of last month. Efforts are being made to put the service on a satisfactory footing.
