HC Deb 10 October 1946 vol 427 c352
42. Mr. Rees -Williams

asked the Assistant Postmaster - General what arrangements are being made for the resumption of a postal service between the United Kingdom and Japan.

Mr. Burke

A service restricted to unregistered, non-illustrated, postcards on personal or domestic matters to the four main islands of Japan is being brought into operation today. For the present, despatches are made only by surface route.

Mr. Rees-Williams

When is it hoped to bring in a full service in addition to the service which the Assistant Postmaster-General has mentioned?

Mr. Burke

We are advised on this matter by the Supreme Allied Command.
