asked the Assistant Postmaster-General when he proposes that the decision to include Branksome Park, Canford Cliffs, Sandbanks and Parkstone in Poole postal district will become effective.

I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the answer given to him on 20th October.

According to the elected representatives of the area, there is a majority in favour of the proposal. When the Postmaster-General received a deputation about two years ago, he said that the change would be made as soon as facilities were available. Am I not right in thinking that facilities are now available?

We have had so many complaints from the public about what we propose to do that we have asked the local authorities in the area to co-operate with us in trying to find out exactly what the people want, and they have agreed to do so. I hope that that will satisfactorily solve the problem.
