HC Deb 01 March 1967 vol 742 cc99-100W
Mr. Elystan Morgan

asked the Minister of Transport if she will consult the Postmaster-General with a view to establishing a mail bus service in Cardiganshire where one quarter of the population is not served by any form of public transport.

Mrs. Castle

As announced during the debate on transport policy on 22nd February, it is intended to arrange further experiments with rural mail buses. The places will be chosen by my Department and the General Post Office in consultation with the local authorities, the local bus operators and the Traffic Commissioners. The service must fit in with postal operating requirements and not conflict with other operators' services. If my hon. Friend has any particular route to suggest perhaps he will let me know.—[Vol 741, c. 1844.]
