Postal Half-Holiday.


Postal Half-Holiday. Mr E. M. Hann had aAiotiee of mo- tion on the agenda, That the neces- sary steps be taken to stop the early closing of post offices." Mr Hann was not present, and Mr J. Martin sub- mitted the motion. He remarked that in the outskirts, including Abercwmboi, Aberaman, Godreaman, and Cwmaman, the post offices closed at one o'clock on Thursdays. No one could get a stamp or'postal order after one o'clock on that day. He had heard complaints from Cwmaman and Abercwmboi of this incouvenience. Mr D. R. Llewelyn: You better make your motion general and include all the suburbs. Mr. Martin said he had no wish to deprive the post office staffs of their half-holiday, but he thought the head post oflicc would be able to arrange to keep the post offices open and give a half-holiday per week to each employee. fr. D. E. Da vies moved that they do not interfere. It was all very well to say that the assistants would get their half-holiday all the same, but the Council had no power in that matter. Mr Owen Powell agreed, and added that they should not take any step to deprive Post Office employees of their deprive Post Office employees of their half-holiday. The Council had support- ed shopkeepers in closing early, and the people were becoming accustomed to the new hours. The same thing applied to hairdressers' shops and post offices. Surely it was no hardship on anyone to he unable to obtain a stamp or postal order on a Thursday afternoon. He lived in Cwmaman, and no complaints had reached him. The Clerk suggested that the question be referred to a committee, and that the postmaster be asked to atend. This course was ultimately agreed to.
