§ DR. TANNER (Cork Co., Mid)
I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether his attention has been directed to the inadequate accommodation afforded in the Macroom Post Office; and whether, in view of the fact that new post offices have been built in other places in the South of Ireland which possess less business and postal traffic than Macroom, steps will be soon taken to build new postal premises in Macroom?
§ *THE POSTMASTER GENERAL (Sir J. FERGUSSON,) Manchester, N.E.
The sub-post office of Macroom was fitted up by the sub-postmaster in 1888 at considerable expense, and I am told it affords ample accommodation both for the public and for the staff. A new office is quite unnecessary.
§ DR. TANNER
If I put a representation from the inhabitants before the right hon. Gentleman will it obtain consideration?
§ *SIR J. FERGUSSON
Certainly I will consider it, but I have told the hon. Member what the representation made to me is.
