HC Deb 30 September 1942 vol 383 c764
41. Mr. Brooke

asked the Postmaster-General whether he has any plans this winter for mitigating the inconvenience caused when the last collections of letters take place generally at 4.30 p.m. in outer and 5.30 p.m. in inner London?

The Postmaster-General (Mr. W. S. Morrison)

I am not aware that the arrangements which were in force in London last winter caused any serious inconvenience to the public, and in order to meet the conditions prevailing during the long hours of darkness, I propose to make the same arrangements this winter.

Mr. Brooke

Could there be a larger number of principal post offices where a slightly later collection is made so that anyone who really needs to post letters later can find a post office with a later collection within reasonable reach?

Mr. Morrison

I should like to consider that.
