asked the Postmaster-General whether his attention has been drawn to the continued delay to letters addressed to the W. 1. S.W.1 and S.E.15 postal districts; and whether he has any statement to make.
I much regret the further cases of delay to which the hon. Member has called my attention. The precise cause of the delays has not been ascertained, but it seems probable that they were mainly due to mistreatment of the letters after receipt at the delivery offices. I am having further inquiry made and will write to the hon. Member as soon as possible.
