HC Deb 12 April 1984 vol 58 c348W
Mr. David Atkinson

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will make a statement on the backlog of unopened correspondence with Her Majesty's Stationery Office.

Mr. Hayhoe

There is no backlog of unopened correspondence in Her Majesty's Stationery Office. Owing to the transfer of the publications distribution operation to a new location in London there has been an increase in the number of telephone inquiries received, and this has led to a delay in dealing with written correspondence.
