§ Mr. Body
asked the Postmaster-General how many post offices and sub-post offices exist in the new town area of Basildon; how many of them have been opened since building of the new town began; and whether he is satisfied that the post office facilities are adequate for a town the size of Basildon.
§ Mr. Marples
Two Crown Offices and twelve sub-offices; one of each type has been opened since building of the new town began. I should like to open two more sub-offices straightaway, but this must wait until shops are built in which to put them. Other offices will be opened as necessary as the town develops.
