§ MR. W. BECKETT (Notts, Bassetlaw)
asked the Postmaster General, What is the reason of his not having yet re-established a Post and Telegraph Office in place of the one abolished a year ago by the demolition of houses in Down Street, Piccadilly; and, if he is aware of the great inconvenience caused by there being no Post or Telegraph 168 Office in Piccadilly from Burlington House to Knightsbridge?
§ THE POSTMASTER GENERAL (Mr. RAIKES) (Cambridge University)
All efforts to find a person to undertake the duties of receiver in or about Down Street, Piccadilly, or to obtain premises for a branch post office at an expense which the amount of the business would warrant, have hitherto proved unsuccessful. I can assure the hon. Member that I shall be ready to entertain any proposal for providing an additional post office between Burlington House and Knightsbridge at a reasonable cost.
