HC Deb 07 August 1919 vol 119 cc534-5
35. Lieut.-Colonel Sir GILBERT WILLS

asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware of the inconvenience caused in West Somerset by the absence of an adequate postal delivery beyond Taunton; and if he will take steps to restart immediately the motor service that was in use before the War?


A tender for a motor mail service by road between Taunton and Minehead has been accepted.


Was the tender to which the right hon. Gentleman refers accepted by his Department three months ago, and can he name a date when this improved service will be introduced?


I think the hon. Baronet is mistaken about the date of acceptance of the tender. A difficulty has been experienced in obtaining motor cars.

Captain BENN

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the import of these things is restricted by the Board of Trade?
