§ MR. MACALEESE (Monaghan, N.)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether premises in Clones, which were under the consideration of the Department as suitable for the erection of the long-talked-of new post office in that town, have passed to another tenant, and are now undergoing alterations for carrying on business; and whether the Clones Urban Council have recently sent him a communication complaining of the inconvenience of the pre-* See page 443 of this volume.1529 sent postal accommodation; and what steps do the Department now intend to take in this matter.
§ MR. ANSTRUTHER (for Mr. HANBURY)
The premises referred to have been let to a tenant who is about to adapt them for his private business. A communication on the subject of the postal accommodation was received from the urban council in September last, and the matter has been pressed forward as much as possible. The Department will now proceed to consider other sites which are still on offer.
