HC Deb 22 July 1887 vol 317 cc1754-5
MR. COX (Clare, E.)

asked the Postmaster General, If any appointment has yet been made to the vacant office of postmaster in Six Mile Bridge, County Clare; and, whether there is any foundation for the rumour, that the post office is now about being removed to a distance of over one mile outside the town, to the great inconvenience and against the wishes of the vast majority of the people of the town and the surrounding district?

THE POSTMASTER GENERAL (Mr. RAIKES) (Cambridge University)

, in reply, said, that no appointment had yet been made to the post office referred to. The Treasury had nominated a candidate; but he would not be appointed unless he provided a suitable office in the town, and made proper provision for the discharge of the duties.
