HC Deb 26 May 1881 vol 261 c1307

asked the Postmaster General, If the statement in a local paper is correct that, owing to the unsafe and dilapidated condition of the front of the Post Office at Kidderminster, letters can be removed from the letter-box by passers by; and, whether he will take immediate steps to remedy the complaint?


, in reply, said, so far as he had been able to ascertain, the only probable cause of insecurity was that the box might have become obstructed through persons attempting to post in it parcels too large to pass properly, instead of handing them over the counter. There was nothing, he was informed, in the condition of the front of the office to cause insecurity. The building, however, was an incommodious one, and steps were being taken to provide a new post office.
