HC Deb 20 March 1962 vol 656 cc200-1
27. Sir C. Osborne

asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware that Parliamentary papers posted early on Friday are not delivered in Leicestershire until late on Monday morning; and, in view of the fact that postal deliveries were quicker than this 100 years ago, what steps he is taking to improve and quicken postal deliveries generally.

Miss Pike

Parliamentary papers posted in London early on Friday should be delivered in Leicestershire next day. If my hon. Friend would let me have the covers of any papers delayed in delivery, my right hon. Friend would be glad to look into the matter.

Sir C. Osborne

I will certainly give the cover to my hon. Friend. Since I am one of her constituents and had still not received the folder I signed on Thursday afternoon for Parliamentary papers when I left home at 9 o'clock on Monday morning, is she satisfied that this is the best sort of service we can expect?

Miss Pike

I appreciate the inconvenience caused to my hon. Friend in this matter. As he says, Rothley is a very important part of my constituency, but this is the first complaint I have had about the postal service there.

Mr. Nabarro

You should come in on Fridays, Cyril.
