HC Deb 11 April 1918 vol 104 c1681W

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that Sunday war bulletins are now no longer issued to sub-post offices; whether this is in accordance with his instructions; if so, what is the reason for depriving village communities of this privilege and the date when such Order was issued; and whether he Will immediately give orders for the issue of Sunday war bulletins as heretofore?


Sunday morning war bulletins are and will continue to be exhibited at all telegraph sub-post offices and many other sub-post offices (not telegraph) whenever there is late news of more than ordinary interest. Special arrangements were made to distribute the war bulletins on Good Friday, Easter Sunday and Monday, and they have been exhibited every Sunday since the present battle began. The exhibition of bulletins when there is no news of special interest was discontinued in December, 1916.
