I NOTE the comment from J Smith (“Snail mail shame”, Opinion, April 4) regarding the lengthy delay in receiving mail from the UK.
I am still waiting for an envelope with my tax information to arrive. It was posted at Fremantle Post Office on September 23, 2016. When I enquired with Australia Post about the missing envelope, I was told there was nothing they could do as the item was not tracked. The envelope contained a Manila folder and was about 2cm thick – not exactly something that could be misplaced easily.
I did ask Australia Post if they still use camel trains to transport their mail. BRIAN BELL, Atwell.
