HC Deb 07 December 1960 vol 631 c144W
48. Mr. Grimond

asked the Postmaster-General what consultations he has had with the British Transport Commission with a view to preventing thefts of mail on the railways.

Mr. Bevins

I have been collaborating with my right hon. Friend the Minister of Transport and with the British Transport Commission. We are working urgently on a number of ideas designed to make things more difficult for thieves. Bolts and chains have been fitted on certain trains to protect the guards and mails. Other measures are being taken.
