The alteration to which my hon. Friend refers is part of a general scheme for the re-organisation of telegraph delivery in London. Residents in Highgate will stand to gain generally by the change as their telegrams will in future be delivered by motor-cycle, printing will take the place of handwriting on the delivered forms, and there will be an acceleration of service in the area, as a whole.
