HC Deb 22 May 1957 vol 570 c1200
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.
