HC Deb 27 July 1960 vol 627 c1619
8. Mr. Costain

asked the Postmaster-General whether he will make arrangements to provide simple postal facilities, on a self-service basis, at conferences, exhibitions, and so on.

Miss Pike

Yes, Sir. Two transportable suites of self-service machines selling stamps, stamp booklets and letter cards are now available for use at conferences and similar events. A posting box is incorporated in each suite. If they prove popular we shall provide more of them.

Mr. Costain

Is my hon. Friend aware that her reply will cause a great deal of satisfaction? May we have an assurance that a similar service will be available in the provinces?

Miss Pike

Yes, certainly.
