HC Deb 11 December 1945 vol 417 c207
86. Lieut.-Commander Braithwaite

asked the Secretary of State for War what is the average time now required for the transit of mails from the United Kingdom to India Command.

Mr. Lawson

The average time taken between the base post offices in this country and India is 5.3 days by air and 29 days for parcels by sea. The time of transit between the base post office in India and the unit varies according to the unit location.

Lieut.-Commander Braithwaite

If I send the right hon. Gentleman information from the unit which alleges it has received no mail from home since 18th October, will he look into it?

Mr. Lawson

Yes, Sir.
