HC Deb 25 June 1913 vol 54 cc1078-9W

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that the branch post office at the docks at Cardiff has been closed at night; will he say when this was done; whether the convenience of seafarers at the docks was considered; and whether he will give instructions for its reopening?

Captain NORTON

The Bute Docks Branch Office, Cardiff, is closed from 10 p.m. to 6.30 a.m. The arrangement under which an all-night attendance was formerly given ceased in August, 1908. The convenience of seafarers was considered, but the present hours of business, which are exceptionally long, seem to be such as to meet all reasonable requirements, and I regret that I cannot undertake to extend them.
