HC Deb 02 December 1931 vol 260 c1085
52. Colonel CROOKSHANK

asked the Postmaster-General if he will take steps to improve the postal services to Humbie, in East Lothian, where, although only 17 miles from Edinburgh, letters from London by the usual country post are seldom received next morning by the only delivery, and though representations resulted in a despatch later in the day, this is for collection only and is unreliable?

The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Sir Kingsley Wood)

I am having inquiry made, and I will write to the hon. and gallant Member.


As the raising of this question has been necessitated by the non-delivery of a Government Whip, does not my right hon. Friend think that there is some justification for the demand for a brighter Post Office?


Perhaps my hon. and gallant Friend will allow me time to make some inquiries, and I shall communicate with him.


May I send my right hon. Friend particulars of the case in question?

Sir K. WOOD indicated assent.
