HC Deb 04 August 1922 vol 157 cc1926-7W

asked the Postmaster-General what arrangements were made to meet the heavy telegraph traffic during the Goodwood race meeting; whether he is aware that all telegrams accepted by his representatives in the enclosure were subject to consider- able and unjustifiable delay; and whether he will state what arrangements will be made to prevent a recurrence of this serious difficulty.


Special arrangements were made at the Chichester head office for dealing with the telegraph traffic during the Goodwood race meeting. I am not aware of the occurrence of delay as suggested by the hon. Member, but I am making enquiries on the subject, and will communicate the result to him in writing.
