HC Deb 21 May 1947 vol 437 cc249-50W
Commander Noble

asked the Postmaster-General why it is that ordinary mails, including newspapers, to Jamaica are taking about six weeks.

Mr. Wilfred Paling

Surface mails for Jamaica are despatched every few days, and generally reach Kingston in two to four weeks. I regret, however, that owing to unforeseen delays en route, two fairly recent mails took as long as 34 days.
