§ MR. J. H. DALZIEL (Kirkcaldy Burghs)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he is aware that the Town Council of Kirkcaldy have unanimously passed a resolution declaring that it is desirable that the site of the proposed new post office should be in High Street; and whether before any definite decision is made in the matter, due attention will be paid to this expression of local opinion?
§ MR. HANBURY
The Postmaster General is aware that the Town Council of Kirkcaldy have passed a resolution declaring that it is desirable that the new Post Office for that town should be in the High Street, and he would be glad if their desire could be gratified. Full inquiry, however, has been made, and I regret to say that no suitable site in that street can be obtained at anything like the cost which the amount of the business would justify.
