HC Deb 11 April 1946 vol 421 c347W
Mr. Goronwy Roberts

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General if he is aware of the dissatisfaction among residents of the Chwilog, Caernarvonshire district, because letters are not delivered in the district until mid-afternoon; and if he will augment the delivery service forthwith by increasing the number of postmen to the prewar figure of two, there being a number of unemployed ex-Servicemen in the area willing to undertake the duties of postmen.

Mr. Burke:

My information is that the late delivery times in the Chwilog, Caernarvonshire district, are primarily due to difficulty in finding labour to perform part time postmen's duties, as a result of which two deliveries have had to be combined into one and houses at the end of the combined round are reached later. The position will be kept under review with a view to effecting an early improvement if at all possible.
