§ 15. Mr. Gwilym Roberts
asked the Postmaster-General what plans he has for developing drive-in post offices; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Joseph Slater
There is a drive-in post office in Leicester and a suite of self-service machines for motorists in Luton, but we have no plans for extending this type of service.
§ Mr. Roberts
Would not my hon. Friend agree that there is an urgent need to extend 24-hour self-service facilities? Does he not feel that drive-in arrangements have a contribution to make in this direction?
§ Mr. Slater
These installations are expensive in relation to the service they provide and we would find it difficult to justify the provision of such facilities.
