HC Deb 20 December 1968 vol 775 c511W
Mr. Gregory

asked the Postmaster-General for what reasons a first-class 5d. letter posted in Reddish, Stockport, from Messrs. Nig Halden Limited of Rowsley Works, Reddish, Stockport, at 11.45 a.m. on 5th December, received intermediate franking at Romford and Dagenham, Essex, on 9th December, and did not reach the addressee in Chigwell, Essex, until the second post on 10th December, 1968, concerning which the hon. Member for Stockport, North has made representations to him.

Mr. Stonehouse

I am looking into this matter urgently: the indications are that this letter was unfortunately missorted during transmission. I will write to my hon. Friend when my detailed inquiries are complete.

Mr. Gregory

asked the Postmaster-General what action is being taken to improve the clearance of mail at the Reddish Post Office, Stockport.

Mr. Joseph Slater

Arrangements for the five clearances daily, Monday to Friday, are generally satisfactory, but I am looking into details of the matter and will write to my hon. Friend.
