HC Deb 17 May 1966 vol 728 c238W
Mr. Iremonger

asked the Postmaster-General what are the procedures required to be followed by a person posting a packet in the United Kingdom addressed to Spain so as to acquire proof of de livery of the packet to the addressee; and what steps he is taking to come to an agreement with the Spanish Government for the institution of an advice of delivery service between the two countries.

Mr. Joseph Slater

Under the terms of the international postal agreements to which Spain and this country are parties the sender of a packet addressed to Spain, which is registered or insured, may obtain advice of its delivery. The fee in this country is 6d. and the request should be made at the office of posting, either at the time of posting the packet or within a year thereafter. If the hon. Gentle man experiences any difficulty with this service and will let me know I shall be glad to look into the matter.
