HC Deb 05 March 1963 vol 673 c20W
31. Sir C. Osborne

asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware that three letters marked "urgent" were posted at the Leicester head office at 6 p.m. addressed to the hon. Member for Louth at the House of Commons, and were not received 24 hours later; what is the reason for this lack of efficiency in the postal service; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Mawby

The letters should have been delivered on the morning after posting. They were delayed at the Leicester Post Office. A searching investigation has failed to reveal how this occurred, and I can only express my regret to my hon. Friend for the inconvenience he has suffered.
