HC Deb 05 May 1971 vol 816 cc376-7W
46. Mr. John Hall

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will now state the results of the discussions between his Department and the Post Office about the possibility of using Post Office vehicles to provide transport services in rural areas.

Mr. Eldon Griffiths

The scope for extending the use of postal buses is limited. Their use depends very much on local circumstances, but the Post Office is always ready to look at any reasonable proposals put to it by local bodies.
