HC Deb 12 June 1882 vol 270 cc829-30

asked the Postmaster General, Whether he will at once take steps to acquire a site in the centre of the town of Uxbridge now available for a separate post office, in which the work can be properly performed, with adequate accommodation for the public, and distinct from any private business?


Sir, it has already been pressed upon my notice that certain premises in Uxbridge, which happen to be vacant, would be very suitable for a new Post Office. I have given the subject careful consideration, and I have come to the conclusion that the circumstances do not necessitate the taking of these particular premises. The postmaster has instructions to make certain alterations and improvements in the present office, the situation of which is convenient; and his private business will not be allowed to interfere with that part of the premises devoted to the Post Office.
