HC Deb 14 March 1977 vol 928 c62W
Mr. Peter Mills

asked the Secretary of State for Industry, in view of the social problems created by the closure of sub-post offices in rural areas, what general guidance he will give to the Post Office.

Mr. Les Huckfield

Under the Post Office Act the Post Office has to meet the social industrial and commercial needs of the British Islands but at the same time to have regard to efficiency and economy. I see no need for any general guidance.
