HC Deb 04 May 1882 vol 269 c98

asked the Postmaster General, Whether it is the intention of the Government to proceed with the new post office at York this year?


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.
