asked the Postmaster-General whether, with the advent of double summer-time, he will consider making the final hour of the collection of letters at branch post offices and post-boxes in the London area somewhat later than 4.30 p.m.?
As has already been publicly announced, in accordance with our usual practice, summer postal services will come into operation in London on and from Monday, 29th March. As from that date the final collection will be made between 6 p.m. and 6.30 p.m. from posting points in the London sub-districts, at about 6.30 p.m. in the head district areas, and at 7 p.m. at the head district offices.
I am much obliged to my right hon. and gallant Friend.
