asked the Postmaster-General what steps he is proposing to take to improve the first postal delivery in the West End, so that it reaches offices and residences at or before 8.30 a.m. instead of 9.30 a.m. or after.

My right hon. Friend regrets that because of staff shortage the first delivery of letters in certain parts of the West End has not been completed until after 9 a.m., which is the time by which we aim to complete delivery in the London area. Every effort is being made to keep the delivery to time, but to complete it by 8.30 a.m., would involve prohibitive cost.
