HC Deb 30 November 1971 vol 827 c56W
74. Mr. Redmond

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what consultations, in the interests of retirement pensioners who have difficulty in travelling to collect their pensions, his regional offices seek to have with the Post Office before a decision to close a local post office is finalised.

Mr. Dean

I am assured that the Post Office gives full consideration to the needs of retirement pensioners before a local post office is closed. Facilities already exist for a pensioner who is unable to get to a post office to nominate someone else to cash his pension for him.
