HC Deb 19 February 1947 vol 433 cc186-7W
89. Mr. P. Wells

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General when the mail service to Japan is likely to be resumed.

Mr. Burke

As announced through the Press on 30th January last, unregistered letters as well as non-illustrated postcards may now be sent by surface route to the four main islands of Japan. Business communications are restricted to fact-finding inquiries and the exchange of information preparatory to the resumption of trade as soon as conditions permit.

92. Brigadier Prior-Palmer

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General whether he is aware of the unsatisfactory postal service between this country and Miho; and if he will take steps to ensure that there will be a definite and immediate improvement.

Mr. Burke

Unregistered letters, subject to certain restrictions, and non-illustrated postcards, may now be sent to civilian addresses in the four main islands of Japan. If the hon. and gallant Member has any point in mind which is not met by this answer he will no doubt give me further particulars.
