HC Deb 24 January 1940 vol 356 cc599-600W
Mr. Woodburn

asked the Postmaster-General whether steps can be taken to improve the postal services in Clackmannanshire; and whether, in particular, he can arrange for the delivery of letters in Coalsnaughton before the afternoon of each day?

Major Tryon

The times at which the deliveries of letters commence in Clackmannanshire are mainly determined by the local train services. At Coalsnaughton the delivery begins at 11.30 a.m. and finishes at about 1 p.m. Owing to improvements in the train services, the delivery at Coalsnaughton will begin about 35 minutes earlier on and from Monday next. I am looking into the details of the specific case which the hon. Member has now kindly sent on to me, and I will communicate with him.
