HC Deb 03 December 1936 vol 318 cc1460-1W

asked the Postmaster General whether he is aware of the growing dissatisfaction in the Brentford district owing to the postal services having been transferred to Hounslow; whether under the new arrangement he is aware that deliveries are becoming considerably more belated; and whether, in view of the general dissatisfaction, he will institute a special inquiry into the question of delivering letters?


The deliveries in the Brentford district are in accordance with the standards applicable to places immediately outside the London Postal area and have been in no way worsened since the transfer. Unfortunately in consequence of the recent fogs mails from the North and Midlands were seriously delayed at the end of November and could not be included in the first delivery. This no doubt accounts for the complaints which have reached my hon. Friend.
