HC Deb 22 May 1957 vol 570 cc76-7W
10 and 11. Mr. G. Thomas

asked the Postmaster-General (1) what alterations he proposes to make in the postal service at Cardiff; and whether he will make a statement;

(2) what considerations led him to discontinue the second postal delivery on Saturdays in Cardiff, the capital city of Wales, but to continue the second postal delivery in the Metropolitan area of London.

Mr. K. Thompson:

The alterations announced on 2nd May will apply to the postal services in Cardiff. A fuller announcement will be made locally when the detailed arrangements have been worked out. As was explained last week in reply to the hon. Members for Salford, East (Mr. Frank Allaun) and Brightside (Mr. Winterbottom), what we propose is to suspend one Saturday delivery in all towns, including London.
