HC Deb 15 December 1948 vol 459 c141W
11. Sir P. Macdonald

asked the Postmaster-General why the practice. suspended during the war, of informing the public of dates of arrival at their destination of letters and parcels posted in this country to other countries has not been resumed since the war; and when he intends to reintroduce this service.

Mr. Wilfred Paling

As regards air mail services to countries outside Europe, the pre-war practice of publishing transmission times was resumed last February; the information is contained in the air mail leaflet obtainable free of charge at any post office. The available Outlets for surface mails are not yet sufficiently regular to permit publication of reliable information about transmission times.
