HC Deb 12 December 1945 vol 417 c386
17. Major Digby

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is aware that the new system of forwarding mail to naval ratings serving in merchant ships, through the shipping companies, is causing much delay in the receipt of mails; and what steps he is taking to make the system more satisfactory.

Mr. Alexander

I am aware that certain difficulties have arisen in this connection, and I have made arrangements to bring the naval personnel concerned within the scope of the Naval Mail Organisation.
