§ 29. Lieut.-Colonel HENEAGE
asked the Postmaster-General the number of motor cycles and sidecars employed in rural areas in England for the delivery of parcels; and if, in view of the difficulties experienced by rural postmen in coping with large numbers of parcels, he will consider increasing the deliveries by this means?
§ Sir W. MITCHELL-THOMSON
The number of motor cycles and motor cycle combinations at present in use by the Post Office for the conveyance of mails is about 380. These vehicles are mainly employed in rural districts on services which include parcel delivery. The Post Office is fully alive to the advantages of motor transport and its use is being continually extended.
