§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Postmaster-General why the Post Office purchased advertising space in the national newspapers on 29th January under the heading, 157W What the Post Office can do for you this week. And, regrettably, what it can't do; in which publications was this advertisement carried; and at what cost.
§ Mr. Stonehouse
To inform the public clearly and simply which Post Office services were affected by the industrial dispute and how the public could best use services available.
The advertisements appeared in all national daily newspapers and in the Belfast Evening Telegraph, Edinburgh Evening News, Glasgow Evening Citizen and the South Wales Echo. The total cost was £16,362.
