§ Commander EYRES-MONSELL
asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that letters posted at Shipston-on-Stour before 5.45 p.m. are often not delivered at their destination until the 2036W second day after posting, and that letters received from towns situate nine miles distance are one and a half to two days in the post; and whether he will remedy this state of affairs?
§ Mr. HARTSHORN
Letters posted at Shipston-on-Stour before 5.45 p.m. should be delivered by first post next morning throughout the country generally. Arrangements are being made to improve the service to Shipston-on-Stour from certain neighbouring places. If the hon. and gallant Member will send me particulars of instances of delay I will have inquiry made.
