§ Mr. ELLIS DAVIES
asked the Postmaster-General whether his Department received from the town clerk of Denbigh a communication, dated the 24th December, 1923, complaining of the delay in the delivery of the letters which arrive at 6.30 a.m. and are not delivered in some parts of the town until 9.45 a.m.; whether any inquiry has been made into the matter; and whether the town council may hope for an immediate improvement in the postal arrangements?
§ Mr. HARTSHORN
The communication to which the hon. Member refers was received and inquiry was made. The delivery commences as soon as possible after the incoming mails have been sorted, and is, in ordinary circumstances, completed by about 8.15 a.m. in the business part of the town. In the outskirts the delivery is not later than 9.30 a.m. With the present time of arrival it is not possible to give an earlier service, but I will consider whether it is possible to arrange for an earlier arrival and will communicate again with the hon. Member.
