HC Deb 19 October 1945 vol 414 cc1651-2W
Major Digby

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General how many sub-post offices have been closed down since 1st September, 1939, giving, if possible, separate figures for urban districts on the one hand and for villages and hamlets on the other.

Mr. Burke

Definite figures could only be obtained by considerable clerical work for which staff is not available. It is estimated, however, that there are some 850 fewer sub-post offices than on 1st October, 1939. It is not possible to subdivide this figure into urban and rural.
