HC Deb 07 March 1918 vol 103 c2141W

asked the Postmaster-General whether his attention has been called to the non-arrival of certain mails dispatched from Baghdad to England between the 28th November and the 21st December last; whether such mails have been lost or merely delayed; and whether there is any prospect of their delivery now?


The mails from Baghdad to which the hon. Member refers were no doubt dispatched from India with the Indian mail, which left Bombay at the end of December. This mail has been seriously delayed, but it is not lost. It is expected within the next few days.
