HC Deb 01 June 1960 vol 624 c139W
Mr. Tilley

asked the Postmaster-General if he is yet in a position to say when the overseas letter telegram service will be restored.

Mr. Bevins

I am glad to say that the service will be restored on Monday next, 6th June. I very much regret the inconvenience caused by its suspension. Although there is still a serious shortage of staff, I know that every effort will be made to give good service. Measures are in hand, including pay increases at the recruiting level, agreed with the union, which will, I hope, result in a progressive improvement.
