HC Deb 22 March 2000 vol 346 cc577-8W
23. Mr. Öpik

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will visit rural post offices in Montgomeryshire. [114284]

Mr. Hanson

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State and I are both very aware of the important role played by rural post offices in maintaining the social fabric of their areas and have discussed this issue with colleagues in Central Government and in the National Assembly for Wales. I would be happy to meet with representatives of Montgomeryshire either in London or in Montgomeryshire.
