§ MR. H. G. JOLLIFFE (Somerset, Wells)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he is aware that a site for a new post office at Weston-super-Mare was acquired by Government several years ago, that new accommodation is urgently required, and when the building is likely to be commenced?
§ MR. HANBURY
A site for a new post office at Weston-super-Mare was purchased in 1892, and the building plans are still 174 under consideration. It has been necessary to revise them more than once, as the expense involved was considered to be too great. The Postmaster General regrets that he is not in a position to say when the building will be commenced; but the present office was temporarily enlarged last year, so as to mitigate the need for the new accommodation.
