§ 14. Mr. Dempsey
asked the Postmaster-General if he will provide a mobile postal service in areas which qualify under his criteria for sub-post offices, which he is unable to provide due to lack of suitable available accommodation.
§ Mr. Dempsey
is my hon. Friend aware that some business proprietors are giving up sub-post offices and, as there are no alternative business means of providing the service, whole housing areas have been bereft of these services? Would it not be a convenience to bankers and others if some mobile units were put into operation?
§ Mr. Slater
Our three mobile services are designed to provide a limited service at, for example, agricultural shows and similar events, but to give them a further liability would not be in the interests of the Post Office service.
