HC Deb 17 July 1939 vol 350 c38W
Sir R. Young

asked the Postmaster-General whether he will take steps to remedy the considerable inconvenience that has been caused by the curtailed number of clearances of letterboxes in the rural districts of the island of Guernsey since the beginning of the air service; and whether he is aware that many of the growers of tomatoes, etc., work till 8 p.m., and that a single clearance per day between 7 and 8 p.m. is too early and causes a lapse of approximately 36 hours before correspondence is delivered in the rural areas of the island and in other Channel Islands?

Major Tryon

I have received reports on the subject of the recent alterations, and in view of the representations from growers and others on the island I am arranging for the present collections to be replaced by clearances at 10.30 p.m. or later.
