HC Deb 11 June 1947 vol 438 c117W
95. Sir G. Jeffreys

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that inconvenience is being caused to the public living in the Alresford district of Hampshire since the second delivery of letters which was suspended during the war and restored about nine months ago has now been advanced from 3 p.m. to 1 p.m., with the result that letters from the North of England, Scotland and Ireland are not delivered until the second day after posting and letters posted in the early morning in London are also not delivered until the following day; and what is the reason for this change in the time of the second delivery of letters and will he take steps to have it put back to 3 p.m.

Mr. Wilfred Paling

I am making inquiry into the timing of the second delivery at Alresford and I will write to the hon. and gallant Member as soon as possible.
