§ Mr. G. Thomas
asked the Postmaster-General (1) the number of Service men in Malaya who were surcharged for their Christmas parcel mail and whether, in view of the fact that no parcel is accepted by the Post Office without the correct postage being paid, he will explain the reasons for these surcharges;
(2) the number of airmen serving at Port Swettenham, Selangor, Malaya, whose Christmas parcels were not delivered until February or March; and how many were required to pay extra postage.
§ Mr. Alport
Investigations on the spot have not, so far, provided any information to account for the circumstances to which the hon. Member refers. Inquiries are continuing and my right hon. Friend will write to the hon. Member as soon as they are complete.
