HC Deb 09 July 1947 vol 439 c2182
4. Mr. Rankin

asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware that a package posted by the Hillington works of Mirrless Engineers, Limited, on Thursday, 26th June, just after 5 p.m., was delivered at their Scotland Street works, three miles away, on the morning of 30th June; and if he can give any reason for this delay.

Mr. Wilfred Paling

I am sorry for the delay in this case. I am not satisfied with the treatment of this packet. I am making inquiry and will write to my hon. Friend.

Mr. Rankin

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware there is a feeling that the position has been aggravated by the dismissal of temporary postmen?

Mr. Paling

I do not think these two things are associated.
