§ Mr. FOOT
asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware of the great inconvenience caused to the residents of Fowey, Cornwall, by the alteration of the time of the collection of the London mail from 6.15 p.m. to 5 p.m.; and whether, having regard to the urgent request made by the Borough Council of Fowey, he will take steps to restore the former hour of collection?
§ Mr. HARTSHORN
The alteration is due to an alteration in the local train service, and I fear that it will not be possible to restore the former time of collection while the existing train service remains in force. I should add that the latest time of posting for the supplementary night mail from Fowey, which connects with the second morning delivery in Central London, has been put back from 6.15 to 6.45 p.m. in connection with the same train alteration.
