§ 31. Mr. GRIFFITHS
asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that the 4bersychan Urban District Council and other bodies have approached the postmaster at Pontypool with a view to opening a sub-post office at Waterloo, Talywain; whether he is aware that there are 2,000 inhabitants in this village and that they have to walk over a mile to send a telegram or get on the telephone; and whether he will take any action in the matter?
§ Sir W. MITCHELL-THOMSON
Applications have been received for the opening of a sub-post office in the locality to which the hon. Member refers. There are already three post offices within a radius of half a mile, at two of which telegraph and telephone business is transacted, and I do not consider that the circumstances warrant the establishment of an additional office.
