§ 24. Mr. T. SMITH
asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware of the inconvenience caused to the business community by the closing of the Indian airmail on 4th November some three hours earlier than usual; and whether he will give instructions that the longest possible warning will be given to the public on any future occasion of such earlier closing of the air-mail?
§ Sir E. BENNETT
Attention was specially directed to the earlier closing of the Indian air-mail in the Press and in the Post Office Daily List on the 27th of October, and copies of the air-mail leaflet showing the revised time of posting were obtainable at the Post Offices generally on the 28th of October, a full week before the alteration became effective.
