HC Deb 18 July 1946 vol 425 c258W
92. Mr. Allighan

asked the Secretary of State for War whether newspapers and parcels dispatched from this country to British soldiers in Greece, which take more than one month in transit, go through the A.P.O. at Nottingham; how far the delay is attributable to this; and how far to any other causes.

Mr. Bellenger

Yes, Sir: all the mail goes through the Army Post Office, Nottingham; but this does not result in any delay. Newspapers and parcels for Greece travel by sea, the average transit time varying between 17 to 24 days.
