HC Deb 19 January 1967 vol 739 c119W
Mr. G. Campbell

asked the Postmaster-General why it has been necessary to alter post office hours in the north of Scotland making them less convenient for the general public.

Mr. Edward Short

The changes are part of our national drive to cope with rising costs. I am sorry if the altered hours are less convenient for some of our customers; but, if we are to keep postal charges at a reasonable level, economies of this kind must be made.
