§ 99. Mr. Osborne
asked the Assistant Postmaster-General if he is aware that letters posted at the head post office in Leicester at 6.45 p.m. were not delivered at the Members' Post Office in the House of Commons until two days later; that constant complaints are being made about the poor delivery of letters; and if he will establish an independent inquiry to see how far the public can be given the pre-war facilities in postal deliveries.
§ Mr. Gammans
Letters posted as stated should have been delivered in London by first post next week-day; inquiry is being made into the case of delay of which my hon. Friend has just given me some details, and I will write to him as soon as possible. I should add that I have no evidence of any general dissatisfaction with the postal service between Leicester and London.
