HC Deb 01 December 1955 vol 546 c250W
128. Mr. Russell

asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware that some letters sent from London to British troops in Cyprus are taking nearly three weeks to reach their destination, whereas homeward letters take only three days; and if he will take steps to speed up the transmission of outward mail.

Mr. Gammans

Fully paid airmail letters to our Forces in Cyprus should normally be delivered within about three to four days of posting, but letters prepaid at the surface rate may take about three weeks. I will gladly look into any case of delay if my hon. Friend will let me have details.
