HC Deb 24 July 1939 vol 350 c1014
47. Mr. Viant

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that a number of complaints have been made in respect of delay in the delivery of telegrams from the Gosport office; and whether he is satisfied that the number of messengers is adequate, in view of the office being so far removed from the large housing estates?

Major Tryon

The number of telegrams delivered from the Gosport Post Office during the past six months was nearly 14,000, and during that period only two-complaints were received of delay in delivery. Judged by the usual standards, the messenger staff at the office is fully adequate for the delivery work to be performed.
