§ Mr. FORESTIER-WALKER
asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware that, as a war measure, the Mardy Post office, near Abergavenny (Mon.), was closed; and whether he will now reopen the post office, in view of the fact that there is a population of some 1,400 people and no post office within reasonable distance?
§ Mr. PEASE
The sub-post office at Mardy was closed in June, 1916. The head post office at Abergavenny is only a mile away, and there is another office at a distance of one-half to three-quarters of a mile. These offices provide reasonable postal facilities for the neighbourhood, and I am not prepared to sanction the cost of reopening an office at Mardy.
