HC Deb 14 February 1951 vol 484 c71W
109. Mr. Houghton

asked the Postmaster-General why Todmorden, Lancashire, is used as the postal address of a town in the administrative county of the West Riding of Yorkshire; and if he will have this procedure stopped.

Mr. Ness Edwards

The geographical county boundary between Yorkshire and Lancashire runs along the main street of Todmorden; the Post Office is on the Lancashire side of the boundary. The present address, which is of long standing, best serves the local interest in a speedy and reliable postal service.
