HC Deb 27 September 1944 vol 403 cc256-7W
Sir G. Gibson

asked the Postmaster-General if he is satisfied with the postal communications between Turkey and Great Britain; and how many weeks it takes mail posted in the United Kingdom to reach Turkey.

Captain Crookshank

An airgraph service is now available to Turkey and this offers the quickest means of postal communication. Mails sent by surface route to Turkey are taking approximately six-seven weeks in transmission from country to country. I am naturally not satisfied with the present service and will, lose no opportunity of improvement as soon as conditions permit.
