HC Deb 11 December 1946 vol 431 cc241-2W
116. Mr. Piratin

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General what steps are being taken to arrange parcel deliveries from the United Kingdom to Albania, Bulgaria, Rumania and the U.S.S.R.

Mr. Burke

We have been pressing for the resumption of these parcel post services for some time and with regard to the U.S.S.R. I am glad to be able to announce that the agreement of the Soviet and Finnish authorities has just been received to the exchange of parcel mails through Finland, and the service from this country starts tomorrow.

Arrangements for a gift parcel service to Albania, Bulgaria and Rumania are in hand, and these services will start as soon as the necessary agreement of intermediate countries on the route has been obtained.
