HC Deb 12 May 1943 vol 389 cc615-6
37. Mr. Kirkwood

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that busi- ness firms in Glasgow are concerned at the proposal to abolish the mid-day delivery of letters bringing the bulk of the mail from the South which, if not delivered until the afternoon, cannot be dealt with the same day; and whether he will reconsider his decision and do away with the morning delivery and retain that at midday?

The Assistant Postmaster-General (Mr. Grimston)

Yes, Sir. My right hon. and gallant Friend proposes to arrange for the second delivery in Glasgow to commence before noon. This arrangement is understood to be acceptable locally. The second part of the Question does not therefore arise.

Mr. Kirkwood

Thank you very much.
