HC Deb 23 February 1966 vol 725 cc403-4
25. Mr. Hunt

asked the Postmaster-General whether he will give an assurance that no changes are contemplated in the designation of the Bromley, Kent, postal district.

Mr. Joseph Slater

No change is contemplated at present. But when the use of postal codes which are designed to help mechanised sorting is extended, Bromley—like other towns—will have them added to the address.

Mr. Hunt

Is the hon. Gentleman aware that that simply tends to confirm the ugly rumours which have been circulating in my constituency that Bromley is to become London, S.E.57, or some other similar numerical abortion? Will he bear in mind that Bromley is an area with great local pride which would greatly resent any such changes?

Mr. Slater

Every consideration will be given to the point raised by the hon. Gentleman.
