HC Deb 01 May 1893 vol 11 cc1630-1
MR. HERBERT ROBERTS (Denbighshire, W.)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether repeated applications have been made for a post office by the inhabitants of Gwytherin, in Denbighshire, which is a centre for a considerable rural population, and has a largely attended school; whether he is aware that the nearest post offices are at Llanrwst, five miles distant, and Llangernyw, four miles distant; whether the Memorials addressed to the Department on the subject from time to time have set forth the serious inconvenience both personal and in business transactions to which the residents are put by the want of postal facilities in the locality; and whether, in view of these facts, he can see his way to authorise the establishment of a post office and savings bank at Gwytherin?


I received an application of my hon. Friend on this subject in February last; but I find no record in the Department of any Memorials or previous applications from inhabitants of the district. I am glad to say that it will be possible to open a post office in the village, which appears to be only two and a-half miles from Llaurwst. The circumstances do not admit of money order and savings bank business being transacted there except under guarantee; but if a guarantee is forthcoming the matter will be attended to.
