HC Deb 26 April 1897 vol 48 c1074
SIR JOHN LUBBOCK (London University)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he could see his way to close the smaller telegraph offices on Hank Holidays at the same hours as on Sundays?


A number of the smaller telegraph offices in towns where there are several are already altogether closed on Bank Holidays, or closed at the same hours as on Sundays; but the Postmaster General fears that much inconvenience to the public would be caused if village telegraph offices which are at a considerable distance from other offices were closed at the same hours as on Sundays.
