HC Deb 04 May 1888 vol 325 c1352
MR. RICHARD (Merthyr Tydvil)

asked the Postmaster General, Whether he is aware that the functions of the Post Office at Aberaman as respects savings banks payments, Post Office orders, postal orders, and telegraphic communications have been suspended for several weeks, to the great inconvenience of the inhabitants generally, and of the working classes especially; and, whether he will give instructions that those branches of the postal business be there resumed without delay?

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

The transaction of those branches of Post Office business described by the hon. Member has been temporarily suspended at Aberaman, owing to the necessity of immediately taking the office out of the hands of the late receiver. Steps are being taken for the appointment of another receiver; and when this has been done, no time will be lost in arranging for the transaction of all branches of Post Office business at Aberaman as before. I am informed that there is a post office within a short distance, where the required accommodation is supplied.
