HC Deb 09 May 1919 vol 115 c1221W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that there has recently been delay in the transmission of parcels to our troops in Italy; and whether he will cause inquiries to be made and the delay to be rectified?


My right hon. Friend has asked me to answer this question. Parcels for troops in Italy are for warded by military trains from France, and the frequency and time of transmission depend on the train service available. There is no avoidable delay so far as the Post Office is concerned.
