HC Deb 22 May 1962 vol 660 c198
16. Mr. Spriggs

asked the Postmaster-General how many post offices are situated a half-mile or less from another post office in the United Kingdom.

Miss Pike

My right hon. Friend is sorry the information is not available, and it could not be obtained without disproportionate expense.

Mr. Spriggs

Does the hon. Lady recall that one post office was mentioned in correspondence I had recently with her, and will she be prepared to make the best use of an official pair to visit the district to see whether she can agree to give us a sub-post office?

Miss Pike

I receive very many attractive invitations to visit different parts of the country and I do my best to fall in with hon. Members' wishes.
