HC Deb 14 October 1941 vol 374 c1265W
Sir R. Glyn

asked the Postmaster-General whether, in view of the success of the airgraph system of letters to the troops in the Middle East, arrangements will now be made for the garrisons at Malta, Gibraltar and Singapore to have the benefits of this service; and how soon can these facilities be provided?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

I have already taken steps, in collaboration with the other Departments concerned, which will, I hope, result in a considerable extension of the Airgraph service.. I cannot yet give details or say when it will be possible to complete the necessary technical and other arrangements, but no time will be lost. Technical considerations preclude the extension of the service to Malta and Gibraltar.
