HC Deb 11 March 1959 vol 601 c1246
22. Mr. Palmer

asked the Postmaster-General if he will now reconsider his decision not to authorise a new sub-post office on the Hutton Lane Estate, Guisborough, in view of the further representations made by the local authority and residents.

Mr. Marples

I have considered this matter again very carefully but I am sorry I should not be justified in authorising an office.

Mr. Palmer

Does not the right hon. Gentleman sometimes boast that the Post Office has not been the same since he took over? In those circumstances, could not he show a little more flexibility of mind in the provision of sub-post offices?

Mr. Marples

If the hon. Gentleman has any further evidence to submit to me, I will look at it again; but, in the light of evidence already submitted, I would say that there are other places which would deserve a sub-post office before the place in question.
