HC Deb 23 February 1966 vol 725 c90W
62. Mr. Ron Lewis

asked the Postmaster-General what consideration has been given by his Department to the design of a new street posting box to replace existing models.

Mr. Benn

We are considering a new rectangular design which will be much easier to clear.

When the design details are settled some of the new boxes will be tried out in co-operation with local authorities. We do not, of course, intend to replace all our existing pillar boxes.
