Mr. WILLIAM JENKINS
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?
§ Mr. NEVILLE CHAMBERLAIN
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.
