HC Deb 03 May 1972 vol 836 c146W
53. Mr. Sydney Chapman

asked the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications what was the average percentage of delay to mail in numbers and extent of time in the work-to-rule period of railwaymen commencing on Monday, 17th April.

Sir J. Eden:

Precise figures are not available but the Post Office tells me that many letters were delayed one day and parcels two days.
