HC Deb 29 October 1956 vol 558 c113W
Mr. W. Wells

asked the Postmaster-General what postal arrangements are in force for the dispatch of mail from the United Kingdom to British Forces in Cyprus.

Mr. Alport

Surface letters are dispatched twice weekly and take about sixteen days (parcels take a little longer): the charge is 2½d. for the first 1 oz. and 1d. for each additional 1 oz. Air mail is dispatched daily and delivered normally within three to four days : the charge for letters sent by air is 6d. for the first 1½ oz. and 6d. for each additional ½ oz. "Forces Letter" forms, which are obtainable at post offices, go by air for 2½d.
