HC Deb 01 April 1935 vol 300 cc29-30W

asked the Postmaster-General whether the daily deliveries of letters in Hammersmith are fewer than those in the adjoining boroughs of Paddington and Kensington; and, if so, whether it is possible to increase the number of Hammersmith deliveries?


The boundaries of postal districts do not coincide with those of boroughs, and head postal districts generally represent central business areas, and it is for that reason that postal facilities are as a rule greater in those districts. The daily deliveries in Hammersmith, while not as numerous as those in the head district area of Paddington and a part of Kensington, are the same as those given in the majority of London sub-districts, and I have no reason to believe that they do not provide an adequate service.
