HC Deb 23 April 1968 vol 763 c33W
Viscount Lambton

asked the Postmaster-General what is the average time that it takes for a letter despatched in the United Kingdom to reach the Island of Anguilla.

Mr. Mason

Letters reach St. Kitts, which is the headquarters of the postal administration of St. Kitts-Nevis-Anguilla, in from one to three days if sent by air. By surface route they take 10–21 days from the date of sailing, depending on the speed of the ship used. There are up to three sailings a month.
