HC Deb 16 February 1949 vol 461 cc170-1W
62. Mr. Teeling

asked the Postmaster-General why Parliamentary Papers posted from the House of Commons at 8 a.m. on the morning of Saturday, 12th February, did not reach the senior Member for Brighton at his home in Brighton till Monday morning, in view of the fact that there is an hourly train service taking only one hour from London to Brighton.

Mr. Wilfred Paling

An 8 a.m. posting at the House of Commons post office on Saturday is too late to connect with the second and final letter delivery in Brighton, beginning at 11 a.m., on that day. Delivery on Monday morning would be in proper course. To secure delivery in Brighton on a Saturday, correspondence must be posted at the House of Commons post office in time for the final collection on the Friday evening.
