§ Mr. G. Campbell
asked the Postmaster-General why it has been necessary to alter post office hours in the north of Scotland making them less convenient for the general public.
§ Mr. Edward Short
The changes are part of our national drive to cope with rising costs. I am sorry if the altered hours are less convenient for some of our customers; but, if we are to keep postal charges at a reasonable level, economies of this kind must be made.
