HC Deb 23 February 1966 vol 725 c400
7. Mr. Ennals

asked the Postmaster-General whether he will now take steps to provide an automatic stamp machine for public use in the village of Kings-down, Kent.

Mr. Joseph Slater

I am sorry that this would not be justified. There are already adequate facilities in the village for the sale of postage stamps.

Mr. Ennals

Will my hon. Friend look at this again? Is he aware that villagers have to go over two miles to buy stamps? They have to go to Lower Walmer. If this were provided in the village, not only would it be a great help to the people of Kingsdown but to the many people who stay at the holiday camp in the spring and summer that would make use of it at weekends. Will my hon. Friend look at the matter again?

Mr. Slater

Since this Question was put down I have gone into the position. I am satisfied that in comparison with other districts Kingsdown is well served for stamp selling facilities.
