HC Deb 11 March 1924 vol 170 c2165W

asked the Postmaster-General whether his attention has been called to the two thefts of mails from the railway booking office at Radlett last month, where it is the usual practice for the mail bags to be left through the night in the railway booking office; and whether, seeing that Radlett is now a place of sufficient size and importance to warrant the provision of a regular post office in place of the existing arrangement, he will look into the matter?


The mails were placed in the railway booking office on their arrival by train at 12.15 a.m. until called for by the postman. Other arrangements have now been made. The question of replacing the existing sub-office at Radlett by a Crown Office has been considered, but the circumstances are not at present such as to justify the heavy increase in expense which would be incurred.
