HC Deb 15 December 1922 vol 159 c3388W

asked the Postmaster-General whether it is proposed to alter the postal address of Pontardawe, Glamorgan, to Pontardawe, Swansea; whether he is aware that much confusion and delay in the delivery of letters may arise from such a change; and, in view of the objection of the townspeople of Pontardawe to being identified with the larger town, what steps he proposes to take in the matter?


The postal address of Pontardawe was changed from Pontardawe, Glamorganshire, to Pontardawe, Swansea, at the end of October last. The alteration forms part of a general simplification of the postal arrangements in the district, and it should result in the prevention of delay to letters. I can see no ground for restoring the arrangements formerly in force.
