HC Deb 16 February 1899 vol 66 cc1127-8
MR. O'KEEFFE (Limerick)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaser-General, if any steps have been taken as regards the building of a new post office in the city of Limerick, the tenders for which have been advertised some years since?


It has not been found practicable to arrange reasonable terms for the acquisition of certain of the interests in the proposed new site, and it may be necessary to seek for compulsory powers to deal with them, which would further delay the matter. The tenders to which the honourable Member refers were probably replies to advertisements for a suitable site or building.
