§ MR. CREYKE
asked the Postmaster General, Whether it is the intention of the Government to proceed with the new post office at York this year?
§ MR. FAWCETT
Sir, in reply to my hon. Friend, I have to state that I am very anxious to proceed with the proposed new post office at York as speedily as possible; and every effort will be made, both by the Office of Works and the Post Office, to complete a satisfactory contract for the purchase of the intended site; but the owner does not offer to give immediate possession, so that there must be some delay in any case before building operations can be commenced.
