HC Deb 02 July 1877 vol 235 cc591-2

asked the Postmaster General, If he will state the reasons for the proposed removal of the receiving Post Office, from Gladstone Place, Edinburgh, (in opposition to the wishes of a large number of Petitioners against such removal) to Argyll Place, which the Petitioners consider much less convenient; and, whether, he is aware that the shop to which it is proposed to be removed is licensed for the sale of exciseable liquors, and that the shop in Gladstone Place is not so licensed?


in reply, said, it was found on inquiry that the office would be likely to be of more use in the latter place. The memorial against the alteration had not been received until the 25th of June, and the shop to which the office had been removed was not licensed for the sale of liquors to be consumed on the premises.
