§ Mr. Pounder
asked the Postmaster-General why it takes five days, excluding weekends, for parcels posted in London to be delivered in Belfast; and what steps he intends to take to effect a reduction in this time.
§ Mr. Joseph Slater
A large proportion of parcels from London for Belfast should358W be delivered by the second week-day after posting and the remainder by the following day. I believe that in general this standard of service is being given, but if the hon. Member will let me have details of any parcel which takes as long as he suggests I will gladly look into the matter.
