§ 69. Commander Noble
asked the Postmaster-General what is the latest hour for the dispatch of telegrams to London, within a radius of 50, 100, and 200 miles, respectively, so that their receipt on the same day is assured.
§ Mr. Hobson
Generally speaking, within the radial distances mentioned delivery in London the same day is aimed at for telegrams handed in up to 6 p.m. but varying factors, in particular a shortage of delivery staff, may affect the position at individual offices. After 6 p.m. senders are advised to use a telephonic address, if possible. Every effort is made to deliver telegrams of vital urgency up to all hours.
