HC Deb 02 March 1960 vol 618 c1204
27. Mr. Fletcher

asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware that in some parts of Islington the morning post is not delivered until after 9 o'clock; and if he will arrange for postal deliveries to be made earlier than this.

Miss Pike

I am sorry that some of the deliveries in Islington have been running late. I am looking into this and will write to the hon. Member.

Mr. Fletcher

Would the Minister think it might be a convenient part of the celebrations of the tercentenary of the Post Office to make arrangements in the Metropolis for all letters to be delivered at a reasonable hour in the morning?

Miss Pike

It is our general aim to deliver all letters by 9 o'clock. While in general this is achieved, I realise that there are places in Islington where we are not doing that. As I have said, we are looking into the matter and we hope we shall do better.
