HC Deb 23 April 1968 vol 763 cc32-3W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Postmaster-General whether he will take action, such as a letter to, or advertisement in, the local Press advising persons, when a post box has been set on fire by children or vandals, that their mail may have been destroyed, and where possible advise persons direct if their mail has been damaged on such occasions.

Mr. Mason

Where appropriate, we shall give local publicity to incidents of this sort. We shall continue to explain matters when a damaged packet is delivered, but will notify the sender in addition where his name and address is available and such action would not risk delaying the mail.
