§ 9. Sir G. Jeffreys
asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that in East Hampshire there are rural districts in which letters and parcels are still delivered by postmen whose only means of conveyance is a bicycle, with, in bad weather, consequent delays in delivery; and whether he will ensure that in future all postmen who have to go considerable distances over hilly roads are provided with some form of motor transport.
§ Mr. Wilfred Paling
My policy, subject to difficulties of supply, is to motorise rural services when that course offers advantage. I am having the cases mentioned by the hon. Member examined, and will write to him.
