HC Deb 09 February 1922 vol 150 c344W
Commander BELLAIRS

asked the Postmaster-General what time elapsed between the police asking for the copies of the telegrams in the Bournemouth murder case at the local post office and the actual handing over of those telegrams; and whether any improved regulations have been made to facilitate the work of the police in such extreme cases?


Application for the copies of the telegrams in question was first made at 11 a.m. on 24th December, and the copies were supplied to the police an hour and a-half later. I do not think any change in the regulations is necessary.
