HC Deb 07 February 1938 vol 331 c671
57. Mr. Keeling

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that, owing to the frequently delayed arrival of the mail train at Euston, the mails have at least once a week been reaching Twickenham, Hounslow, Isleworth, and Brentford too late for delivery by the first post; and whether he will urge the London Midland and Scottish Railway Company to be more punctual?

The Postmaster-General (Major Tryon)

I am aware that the connection with the first delivery at these places sometimes fails owing to the late arrival of the mail train. Special attention is being given to the working of this train with a view to avoiding such failures.
