§ 32. Mr. HAYDN JONES
asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that letters and parcels addressed to men serving in the British Mediterranean Expeditionary Force on active service, and dispatched on the 17th August last and on subsequent dates, have not been delivered; and whether steps will be taken to ensure prompt deliveries hereafter?
§ 135. Mr. ANDERSON
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he has received complaints that many parcels sent from relatives to the soldiers at the Dardanelles never reach those to whom they are addressed; and whether, in view of the financial sacrifices made by the poor in sending these parcels, any fresh steps can be taken to ensure more certain delivery?
§ The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Herbert Samuel)
I am hoping soon to receive a report from the officer who has been sent out and who is now conducting an inquiry on the spot.
