asked the Postmaster-General whether he will give particulars of the mobile post office which his Department proposes to introduce in the near future; and whether full telephone and cable service will be available from these movable post offices?

The mobile post office now under construction as an experiment will consist of a trailer caravan towed by a motor tractor and equipped to perform postal, telegraphic and telephone services. Its purpose is to afford the services of the Post Office in a convenient and accessible form at special events such as agricultural shows. I anticipate that normally it will be possible to provide full telephone and telegraph facilities at such post offices.

How many of these is it proposed to construct?

Perhaps the hon. Member will put that question down.
