§ Mr. MIDDLETON
asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware of the 256W great inconvenience caused to postmen in the delivery of letters by the lack of provision of letter boxes in the doors of working-class houses; and whether the will make compulsory the provision of letter boxes or apertures in any houses erected under the Government's new housing proposals?
My right hon. Friend can appreciate that considerable inconvenience would be caused by the omission of letter boxes or apertures for the delivery of letters. He understands that it is customary in houses erected in connection with schemes under the Housing Acts to make such provision, and he does not consider it is necessary to deal with this matter in the new Housing Bill.
