I am not aware that there are many instances in which letters and parcels are delivered open, but I will gladly look into any cases brought to my notice. The Censors seal any packages they open with a label indicating opening. Post Office staff have instructions to secure any packets which may have accidentally come open in the post, and the adhesive tape or labels used for the purpose state that the packets were found open and were officially secured by the Post Office.
Is my right hon. Friend aware that such things as cosmetics, cigarettes and other light articles which are not usually restricted are found opened, and that people all over the country are finding parcels of this class of goods opened and resealed?
