HC Deb 07 March 1968 vol 760 c634
36. Mr. Peter Mills

asked the Postmaster-General if he will make a statement on the postal services to Torrington, in view of the closure of Bideford Bridge.

Mr. Joseph Slater

Early morning mails have been delayed by about 30 minutes; but we are putting this right and I will write to the hon. Member about the matter.

Mr. Mills

My information is that the delays are considerably longer than that. As this area has already suffered enough in various other ways, will the hon. Gentleman at least ensure that the mails can be delivered on time?

Mr. Slater

We do everything that we can to meet that position. We have had to consider various means of rerouting mails and taking care that no community suffers because of what happened, but I shall write to the hon. Gentleman about this.
