HC Deb 08 November 1939 vol 353 c239W
Mr. Lipson

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that letters written from this country to New York arrive there only after a long delay; is he able to state the reason for this and the steps he proposes to take to hasten the delivery of letters to New York?

Major Tryon

Correspondence for the U.S.A. is despatched from this country without avoidable delay and is transmitted as speedily as the available transport services permit. I fully realise the importance of the expeditious delivery of overseas mails and no suitable sailing is being overlooked.
