§ 18. Mr. J. Harrison
asked the Post master-General, in view of the complaints received, if he will inquire into the long delay and, in some cases, the complete failure to deliver mails to Service personnel in Aden.
§ Mr. K. Thompson
I regret that while the Suez Canal was closed surface mails for Aden suffered delay. We now have weekly sailings with a sailing time of fourteen days. I am not aware of any instance of complete failure to deliver mail, but if the hon. Member will let me have details of any case I will gladly have inquiry made.
§ Mr. Harrison
Is the Minister aware that the complaint concerns the loss of some of these mails, which is really very significant? I will take him up on his request to send him some of the details.
