§ Mr. BUXTON
asked the Postmaster-General whether, in view of the general dislocation of business at Sheringham caused by the alteration in the delivery of letters, whereby the first delivery commences about 10 a.m. instead of 8 a.m. as previously, arrangements can be made to convey the morning mail from Cromer by road, the expense involved being small in comparison to the inconvenience and loss in which the present system involves business men and the general community; and whether it can be arranged that the last collection for the evening outward mail shall take place not earlier than 7 p.m. instead of 5.30 p.m., as the letters by that mail do not leave Cromer until 8.40 p.m.?
§ Mr. PEASE
In present circumstances I should not be justified in incurring expense to provide a mail service by road where restriction of train services has resulted in a curtailment of postal facilities, and I regret that I cannot make an exception in the case of Sheringham. There has been a further alteration in the evening train service, and the last collection will be made at 6.30 in future.
§ Mr. BUXTON
asked the Postmaster-General if, in view of the special needs of the fishing industry, he will give permission for the transaction of telegraphic business at the Cromer and Sheringham Post Offices up to 8 p.m. instead of 7 p.m.?
