asked the Assistant Postmaster-General why letters from Spilsby, Skegness and Horncastle written to neighbouring towns and villages now require an extra day for delivery; and whether more use will be made of road transport to ensure quicker delivery.

For some years letters posted in the towns named up to 5.45–6.15 p.m. in the street posting boxes, and up to 7–7.30 p.m. at the main post office, have been due for delivery by the first post throughout Lincolnshire next weekday, and so far as my noble Friend is aware, they are so delivered. If my hon. and gallant Friend will let me have details of any instance in which there has been delay I will be glad to look into the matter.
