HC Deb 23 February 1939 vol 344 c597W
Miss Rathbone

asked the Postmaster-General what are the grounds for his notice to the Press on 16th February to the effect that the service of letters and parcels to Government Spain was suspended; by what routes has that service been carried on; and have efforts been made to find alternative routes by which delivery can be effected?

Sir W. Womersley

Letters and parcels for Government Spain were despatched via France, and the services were suspended in consequence of the receipt of information from the French Post Office that that administration was no longer able to undertake the onward transmission of the mails. I am not at present aware of any suitable alternative route but inquiries in the matter are being continued.
