HC Deb 21 June 1950 vol 476 c119W
68. Mr. Thurtle

asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware that business firms in the Goswell Road area do not receive their first post before 9.10 a.m., and that it is often delivered considerably later; and if he will endeavour to provide earlier delivery to an area approximately only three-quarters of a mile from Post Office headquarters.

Mr. Ness Edwards

Recent increases in the amount of correspondence for delivery in the Goswell Road area have caused some failures to complete the first delivery by the scheduled time of 9.0 a.m. Remedial action has now been taken.

72. Mr. McAdden

asked the Postmaster-General at what hour in the morning delivery of mail in the Thorpe Bay area is completed.

Mr. Ness Edwards

The first delivery is completed by 9.15 a.m.

74. Mr. J. Henderson

asked the Post master-General in order to give the public a better postal service, if he will so reorganise his staff arrangements that a later collection of mail than 5.30 p.m. may be provided in the King's Park and Govan districts of Glasgow.

Mr. Ness Edwards

The final weekday collection from posting boxes in these districts is already made at 6–6.45 p.m., except in the case of one box which is cleared finally at 5.45 p.m. These facilities compare favourably with those provided in urban areas elsewhere, and I regret that I cannot at present provide a later collection.
