§ 18. Commander Donaldson
asked the Postmaster-General if he is satisfied that the letter and parcel services in Peebles are fully efficient and up to normal Post Office standards in regard to deliveries and security, following the recent closure of British Railways services throughout the country; and if he will make a statement.
§ The Assistant Postmaster-General (Miss Mervyn Pike)
Yes. Apart from minor changes, letter and parcel services have been maintained virtually unchanged, and normal security arrangements have been made for the mails. If there is any particular point which my hon. and gallant Friend would like us to consider, my right hon. Friend will gladly do so if he will let him have details.
§ Mr. W. R. Williams
In view of the declared policy of the Chairman of the British Transport Commission that many of these local branch railway lines are to be closed, can the hon. Lady say whether the overall effect on postal facilities is under special consideration to meet the changed circumstances?
