HC Deb 07 May 1924 vol 173 c468W

asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware that in the district served by the Highbury letter carriers' office letters for the country must be posted before 4.45, and that there is no collection thereafter until 6.30, and that during the War, and for some years after, such letters could be posted up to 5.30; and whether he will provide facilities for Highbury at least as good as those available at more distant suburbs?


The present times of posting in the Highbury postal sub-district are similar to those in London suburban areas generally. I regret that, if a later time of posting were conceded, connection with some of the night mails leaving London could not be relied upon.
