HC Deb 14 March 1951 vol 485 cc1519-20
14. Mr. G. Thomas

asked the Postmaster-General when he will be able to arrange a later postal collection in this House for letters to be delivered in Cardiff the next day.

Mr. Hobson

Letters for Cardiff posted in time for the 9.15–9.30 p.m. collection at the House of Commons are due to be delivered by first post next week-day. Supplementary collections made after this time depend upon the hour at which the House rises. Letters for Cardiff posted for supplementary collections made up to 10.40–11 p.m. would still be due to secure first delivery next week-day: those posted in subsequent supplementary collections up to 2.40–3 a.m. would normally secure second delivery.

Mr. Thomas

Is my hon. Friend aware that for a long time letters posted at six o'clock have not been delivered next day in my constituency?
