HC Deb 22 November 1977 vol 939 c627W
Mr. Pink

asked the Secretary of State for Defence which naval establishments have a courier service; and what is the estimated saving against postage for each year since it has been established.

Mr. Duffy

The Forces Courier Communications Service operates a tri-Service network for the movement of classified mail between Ministry of Defence and Services establishments, including all naval establishments. The Royal Navy does not operate its own courier service, although all large naval establishments operate local messenger services for the regular delivery of post within and between neighbouring establishments.

There is no information about savings against public postage of courier or messenger services.
