§ MAJOR RASCH (Essex, S.E.)
I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether he will state the cost to the public of the fitting and furnishing the new post office at Southend, Essex; and whether he has received any complaints of the inconvenience and inaccessibility of the new office as compared with the old building?
§ THE POSTMASTER GENERAL (Mr. A. MORLEY, Nottingham, E.)
The rent of the temporary post office at Southend is £100 a year, and £200 has been spent on fittings and furniture. Most of these articles will be available for use in the new permanent building which is about to be erected. So far as I am aware, only one complaint has been received of inconvenience or inaccessi- 1054 bility of the temporary office as compared with the old post office.
§ MAJOR RASCH
Will the right hon. Gentleman re-consider the matter if it is properly brought before him by deputation or otherwise?
§ MR. A. MORLEY
The hon. Gentleman has not told me what matter he refers to. Of course, I shall be pleased to consider any points laid before me.
