§ COLONEL COTTON (Cheshire, Wirral)
I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether he will cause further inquiry to be made into the Postal arrangements for the delivery of letters in Liscard, Cheshire; and whether, as that district contains now over 30,000 inhabitants, he will consider if he cannot establish a head Post Office there instead of having it worked as a sub-office of Birkenhead, as it is at the present time?
§ *MR. RAIKES
I am not aware that any change is required at Liscard in addition to that of which I informed my hon. Friend in my letter of the 18th instant. If, however, he will communicate with me respecting any further improvement which he considers to be needed, the matter shall receive my attention. It is not proposed to establish a Head Post Office at Liscard, as the change would entail additional expense without sufficient corresponding advantage either to the public or to the Post Office.
