HC Deb 20 June 1938 vol 337 cc694-5
47. Mr. Malcolm MacMillan

asked the Postmaster-General whether he will give favourable consideration to the request of the Lewis District Council at its meeting in January last that all rural post offices in the island should be authorised to issue money orders and accept parcels for foreign delivery, in view of the many complaints that at present people in some villages have to walk four or five miles to reach offices with fuller authority than the village offices?

Sir W. Womersley

There is no record or recollection of representations on this matter from the Lewis District Council; but I will have inquiry made, and write to the hon. Member.

Mr. MacMillan

Will the hon. Gentleman accept my statement that the Lewis District Council agreed on representations about three months ago, and will he accept these representations from me now?

Sir W. Womersley

If the council have written to the hon. Member, surely they ought to send a duplicate copy to me or to my right hon. Friend?
