HC Deb 11 November 1952 vol 507 cc21-2W
68. Mr. Janner

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that a parcel posted in Leicester by Mrs. Creasey, 64 Norman Street, on 20th August, had not reached her son in Korea by 12th October; that four parcels posted shortly thereafter had also not been delivered; and what steps he will take to expedite the delivery of parcels to troops in Korea.

Mr. Head

Parcels going by sea to the British Forces in Korea are sent by the fastest shipping available. I am informed that the first parcel posted by Mrs. Creasey would, in the normal course, reach Japan on 13th October and be delivered shortly after.

The other parcels should also have been delivered by now, but I am making inquiries and will write to the hon. Member.
