HC Deb 03 July 1918 vol 107 c1727
90. Mr. CAREW

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware of the inconvenience caused to the inhabitants of Dawlish owing to the late delivery of the morning letters, 10 a.m., whilst the last outward mail closes at 5 p.m.; and whether, as Dawlish is on the main Great Western Railway, he can afford any relief to this interference with the business of that locality?

The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Illingworth)

I am considering the possibility of providing an earlier morning delivery at Dawlish without increase of expense, and will write to the hon. Member on the completion of the inquiries which I am having made.


Does not the right hon. Gentleman think it advisable that railway companies and the Post Office should act more in accord with the public interest, and was it necessary to remove the appliances for catching the mails from non-stopping trains?


The hon. Member should give notice of that question. It deals with details about which the Postmaster cannot possibly know.
