HC Deb 21 January 1897 vol 45 c178

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, what progress has been made as regards the advertisement for a site on which to build a new post office in the city of Limerick; and, whether having regard to the admitted necessity for a new building, he will direct expedition to be made in the negotiations to effect that purpose?


An advertisement for a site for a new post office at Limerick was published some time ago and in response several offers for the purpose have been lately received. The Department is now carefully inquiring into the suitability of each of the proposed sites, but I regret to add that none of them—so far as the examination has as yet gone—appear to be acceptable.
