HC Deb 20 July 1959 vol 609 cc90-1W
Commander Maitland

asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware that the normal time taken by a parcel posted in London to North Lincolnshire is two days; and what action he proposes to improve the parcel post in North Lincolnshire.

Mr. Marples

Most parcels for North Lincolnshire posted in London up to 5 p.m.—later at a number of offices—are delivered next day, but some for rural areas are not normally delivered until the second day after posting. I am looking into the individual case about which my hon. Friend wrote to me.
