asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that letters posted in London on Friday by the country post to the Macclesfield area are often late and not delivered until Monday morning; and if he will take steps to improve this delivery.
My right hon. Friend very much regrets that some letters posted in London on Friday evenings and which should have been delivered in Macclesfield next morning have on occasions been delayed in delivery because the bags containing them were not unloaded at the night station. Steps have been taken to prevent a repetition of this.
asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that letters posted in the Macclesfield area in the morning do not always arrive in London S.W.1 area by the first post next day; and if he will take steps to improve this delivery.
Letters for London, S.W.1, posted in the Macclesfield area in the morning should be delivered by first post next weekday. The hon. and gallant Member has been good enough to send me details of some letters which ought to have received this service but which did not do so. I am making inquiries into his complaint and will write to him as soon as possible.
