88. Lieut.-Colonel GUINNESS
asked the Postmaster-General whether instructions have been given at the post office in Parliament Street that letters for the London-Paris air-mail service are only to be accepted for posting in the morning; what is the reason for preventing the posting of such correspondence daily at the end of business hours; and whether he will now arrange for its acceptance at any time of the day at the eight post offices mentioned in the original announcement?
§ The ASSISTANT POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Pease)
No instructions have been given for the refusal of aeroplane letters 'tendered at the Parliament Street branch office in the evening for despatch by the air-mail service to Paris on the following day; and steps have been 406 taken to prevent the refusal of such letters at any of the eight London offices at which correspondence may be posted for transmission by the air-mail service.
