HC Deb 24 July 1940 vol 363 c815
69. Mr. Parker

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that parcels addressed to men serving in Northern Ireland have been refused by the Post Office; and whether he can look into this matter and provide adequate parcel facilities?

Sir E. Grigg

Under an Order made on 6th July, parcels may not ordinarily be sent to Northern Ireland without a permit. Arrangements are, however, being made for parcels to be sent to soldiers in Northern Ireland without a permit, if they are addressed to the unit address. An announcement containing full instructions will be issued this week by my right hon. Friend the Postmaster-General.
