HC Deb 20 May 1924 vol 173 cc2035-6W

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 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?


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.

Forward to
