asked the Postmaster-General the number of parcels, and their weight, received from America and delivered to houses in Great Britain for the years 1938, 1940, 1941, 1942 and 1943, respectively?

The number and weight of parcels for civil addresses from the United States of America, to which I understand the hon. Member refers, are as follow:

Number of Parcels.Weight in Tons (estimated)
March Qtr., 1943145,000250
I regret that no records are kept distinguishing parcels delivered to private houses from those delivered to other civil addresses.
