§ MR. M'CARTAN
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, with reference to the proposed new post office in Lurgan, County Armagh, whether he can say if the site has been yet secured; in what portion of the town it is situate; can he say about what date it is intended to commence the building; and whether he can say about what date the new premises are expected to be open for postal and telegraph business.
§ MR. HANBURY
Legal arrangements are in progress for acquiring the site of the present post office at Lurgan, but it cannot yet be stated when the purchase will be completed. Plans of the new building have not yet been prepared, but it is expected that the work will be begun during the ensuing financial year.
