HC Deb 23 June 1948 vol 452 c135W
77. Mr. Janner

asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware that there is widespread pilfering of parcels sent to this country from America; and what steps are being taken to remedy this state of affairs.

Mr. Wilfred Paling

I am aware that pilfering of parcels from America, though small in relation to the immense volume of traffic, does occur; but I can assure the hon. Member that a vigorous effort is being made by all the authorities concerned to stamp out the thefts.
