HC Deb 08 October 1940 vol 365 c286W
Dr. Little

asked the Postmaster General, whether, in view of the continuous complaints being made as to the delay in the delivery of letters from Great Britain to Northern Ireland, he will take steps at once to see that these letters are delivered within a reasonable time?

Captain Waterhouse

Apart from the fact that letters to Northern Ireland have to pass through the censorship, the recent air raids, particularly in the London area, have unavoidably caused delays in the sorting and conveyance of letters. Work in sorting offices is, as far as possible, now carried on during air raids until danger appears imminent, and other adjustments have been made to meet the present situation.
