HC Deb 26 October 1955 vol 545 c24W
67. Mr. Parker

asked the Postmaster-General why there have been such long delays in receiving mail in the Forces at Hong Kong; and what action he is taking on the matter.

Dr. Hill

I have no knowledge of any general delay to Forces mails for Hong Kong. As I explained in my letter of 13th October to the hon. Member, letters sent by surface route take from five to seven weeks in transit, but if he will let me have further details of any cases of delay he has in mind I will gladly look into them.
