HC Deb 28 February 1881 vol 258 c1850

asked the Post master General, What steps, if any, are in progress for the completion of the proposed new post office in Manchester?


Sir, I can assure the hon. Gentleman that the urgent want of a new post office in Manchester is fully recognized. I have done everything in my power to help on the building of that post office. The plans were settled some time ago, and they have been referred to the First Commissioner of Works. I have my right hon. Friend's authority for saying that tenders were advertised last week, and that he will see that there is no unnecessary delay in commencing or in completing the building.
