asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware that a telegram was handed in at Llanhilleth Post Office by G. Lewis at 9.2 a.m. on 8th June, addressed to Barker, Grimsby; that up to 10th June this telegram had not reached Grimsby; that in consequence Lewis had no fish for his customers; that on 1st June a telegram sent early in the morning to Grimsby did not reach there until late in the evening, and that no fish was sent in consequence; and will he snake inquiries into this complaint and indemnify this man for the business loss he has sustained?
