HC Deb 06 April 1955 vol 539 c108W
Mr. Vane

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General whether his attention has been drawn to his Department's stand at the "Ideal Homes Exhibition" purporting to illustrate the speedy handling of mail between London and the Penrith district; and, in view of the fact that much of the mail posted in London for delivery in that neighbourhood may take 36 hours in transit, if he will try to improve the service.

Mr. Gammans

The main purpose of the Post Office exhibit was to emphasise that the use of correct postal addresses helps to speed the delivery of the mail. Fully-paid letters posted in central London up to 7.30 p.m. should be delivered by first post on the next week-day in the Penrith district. I am writing to my hon. Friend about the delay to the letter of which he has sent me details.
