§ MR. C. FENWICK (Northumberland, Wansbeck)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he has received a petition signed by the inhabitants of Seaton Delavel, New Hartley, Old Hartley, and Seaton Sluice, in the county of Northumberland, asking for improved postal arrangements; and, if he can state whether it is his intention to take steps to provide further facilities in accordance with the wishes of the petitioners?
§ MR. HANBURY
The Postmaster General has received the Petition referred to, and a report will shortly be submitted to him on the subject. It is hoped that arrangements will be found practicable for affording some improvement in the postal service to the places named.
