HC Deb 27 October 1943 vol 393 c177
37. Viscount Hinchingbrooke

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether there has been any interruption in recent weeks of the regular delivery of letters from home to royal naval bases in Sicily?

Mr. Alexander

No, Sir. There has been a regular delivery of mails by both sea and air to Sicily.

Viscount Hinchingbrooke

Can my right hon. Friend assign any reason for the fact that of the letters from two of my constituents to their sons in Sicily sent each week since June none has been received?

Mr. Alexander

There have been a few complaints received, but they have usually been cases of mis-sorting and things of that sort, which have been put right as speedily as possible. The main delivery of mails has been quite regular.
