asked the Postmaster-General what investigations he has made into the complaints he has received about deterioration of postal services in the Accrington area since they were brought under the Blackburn Post Office; and what has been the result.

All complaints of delay to mail to and from Accrington have been thoroughly investigated. There is no reason to think that delay has been caused, or the services worsened, by the transfer to Blackburn of the work of sorting and dispatching mail posted in the Accrington area. On the contrary, the change has enabled useful improvements to be made in the latest posting times at the Accrington Post Office for first delivery next weekday in many parts of the country.
