Ambulance delays


Sir, – It is reported (Front page, June 21st) that a child died after an ambulance called by the parents went to the wrong address. If only we had a decent postal code in this country this sort of thing could not happen.

It is a disgrace that a national postcode solution was proposed by the government in 2005 for completion by January 2008 and is now more than five years overdue. How many more years until there’s a decision? – Yours, etc,
