HC Deb 16 November 1960 vol 630 cc41-2W
61. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware of the shortage in the Cavincoy, Northfield, Mastrick and Woodside districts of Aberdeen of postage facilities, and of the long and hilly distances between letter boxes; and if he will take steps to improve these facilities before the coming winter.

Mr. Bevins

There are some 30 street posting boxes, and 9 post offices each with its own posting box serving these districts. I am having an additional box put up in the busy Greenfern Road area of Mastrick. With this, I think the facilities for posting will in general be satisfactory; but if the hon. and learned Gentleman still feels that the posting facilities need augmenting in any other locality I should be glad to look further into the matter if he will let me have details.
