HC Deb 14 March 1951 vol 485 cc1523-4
30. Mr. Braine

asked the Postmaster-General what steps he is taking to improve postal services in the Benfleet urban district in view of the inconvenience caused by late and irregular deliveries.

Mr. Hobson

My right hon. Friend is looking into this matter and will write to the hon. Member as soon as possible.

Mr. Braine

Is the hon. Gentleman aware that in one specific case, particulars of which have been sent to him, first deliveries took place on four days in one week between 11 a.m. and 12.35 p.m.? Is it not about time that my constituents had a very much better service than that? Will he urge upon the Postmaster-General the necessity for speed?

Mr. Hobson

As a result of the hon. Member's complaints we are looking into the matter and I am positive that action, as usual, will be taken.
