asked the Postmaster-General whether he will review the decision made to disallow an application from the Knighton, Radnorshire, Urban District Council, for a stamp machine on Fronhir housing estate, in view of the fact that elderly persons and children find it difficult to fetch stamps from the post office three-quarters of a mile away with three road crossings and than the suggested postman stamp service is not convenient.

He would be happy to arrange for a householder on the estate to have a licence to sell stamps if the council would allow this.
