asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware that a large number of parcels of food and clothing sent by post from Northern Ireland to displaced persons in the British zone, in Germany have not been delivered; and if he will take steps to ensure prompt delivery of such parcels.

In strictness parcels may not at present be sent to displaced persons in the British zone in Germany, although I hope to announce the commencement of a parcel service within the next few days. If the hon. Member will let me have particulars of the parcels he has in mind, which would seem to have been accepted under a misapprehension, I will have inquiries made.
