HC Deb 01 December 1964 vol 703 cc47-8W
74. Mr. Crowder

asked the Postmaster-General why a letter, the original envelope of which has been sent to him, posted in Knebworth on Sunday, 22nd November, before 5.13 p.m. by the hon. Member for Ruislip-Northwood did not reach the House of Commons until Tuesday, 24th November.

Mr. Joseph Slater

This letter should have reached the House of Commons early on Monday, 23rd November, and I am sorry that it did not do so. I regret that despite full inquiry it has not been possible to establish the precise cause of the delay.
