HC Deb 16 February 1944 vol 397 c173
40. Mr. Keelinģ

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that mail which left this country four months ago is only now being delivered in Australia; and whether he is satisfied that every opportunity of despatching mail by British or Allied merchant and warships is utilised.

Captain Crookshank

All the surface mails for Australia despatched last October arrived in December. The mails are despatched by every suitable opportunity.

Mr. Keelinģ

Is that an answer to the Question about the mails now being delivered? Can I have an answer to that question?

Captain Crookshank

No, Sir. If all the mails despatched four months ago were delivered in December, they are not now being delivered.
