HC Deb 04 May 1882 vol 269 cc87-8

asked the Postmaster General, If his attention has been called to the inadequate accommodation afforded by the Post Office at Braintree, and its unsatisfactory character; and, whether he will take steps to remedy the inconvenience which is now felt in that town and the surrounding district?


Sir, the subject of providing improved Post Office accom- modation at Braintree has engaged my attention, and I should be very glad if it were practicable to make a satisfactory change; but, at present, there are no means of doing so without incurring undue expense; but I can assure the hon. and gallant Member opposite (Colonel Brise) the matter shall not be lost sight of.
