HC Deb 07 December 1950 vol 482 cc87-8W
Mr. W. J. Taylor

asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware that Service mail from Korea is taking up to 18 days to reach Bradford; and whether he will take steps to speed up delivery.

Mr. Strachey

I have been asked to reply. Correspondence from British forces in Korea is normally due to be delivered in this country within about 10–14 days of posting into British Army post offices in Korea. In active operations there will be occasions when these times will be exceeded, but all practicable steps are being taken to keep delays to a minimum. If the hon. Member will let me have details of any case of delay which he thinks calls for inquiry, I shall be pleased to look into the matter.
