asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware that aeroplanes arriving at frequent intervals from this country in Libya often carry no mail; and whether, in view of the fact that Service personnel in the Middle East are disturbed by the resulting irregularity of letter deliveries he will endeavour to arrange for an improved service.
§ Mr. Strachey
I know that there have been some irregularities in the arrival of mail in Tripolitania. These were due to mechanical trouble that we have been meeting with some aircraft. The arrangements have been changed now, and these deliveries should be no less satisfactory than those for the Services elsewhere in the Middle East.
