HC Deb 02 August 1894 vol 27 cc1582-3
MR. E. H. BAYLEY (Camberwell, N.)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether, pending the alterations to the Money Order Office in Coldbath Fields, he will arrange for the staff to be accommodated elsewhere, Lord Playfair and Dr. Corfield having reported that is not justifiable to continue the use of the offices in their present condition; whether the floor of the chapel will be raised within four of the windows as suggested; and whether the use of the lower rooms will be discontinued?


I must refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on Friday last to the hon. Member for the Watford Division, that the alterations to the Money Order Office can be carried out without interruption to the use of the building. The answer to the last paragraph is in the negative. It is not pro- posed to raise the floor of the old chapel, but the windows are being altered in accordance with the recommendation in Lord Playfair and Dr. Corfield's Report.
