HC Deb 27 July 1960 vol 627 cc1619-20
11. Mr. Stewart

asked the Postmaster-General whether he will establish a sub-post office at 4, Station Approach, London, S.W.6.

Miss Pike

There are two post offices within half-a-mile of No. 4, Station Approach and three more within three-quarters of a mile. I am sorry, but I should not be justified in opening yet another office in the area.

Mr. Stewart

Does the hon. Lady realise that this is a very populous area and that her reply does not sufficiently consider the very heavy pressure at the Putney High Street office which would be alleviated if this proposed office were established? Facilities in the Putney Bridge area, which are described in a letter to me as being of a good standard, are decidedly inferior to those in the Lower Richmond Road area. May I have an opportunity of discussing this matter further with the hon. Lady or with her right hon. Friend?

Miss Pike

I would welcome a discussion on the matter, but I can assure the hon. Gentleman that it has been gone into very fully indeed.
