HC Deb 23 June 1902 vol 109 c1362

To ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, if he is aware that the inhabitants of South Ambersham, Sussex, have no means of posting letters within a mile and a half of them; and if he will reconsider the memorial addressed to him in March last, with a view to seeing if, by a re-arrangement of the letter carriers' rounds in the Midhurst Postal District, he could give the inhabitants the same facilities as are enjoyed by residents in other places of the same size in the district.

(Answer.) The question of erecting a letter box at South Ambersham and affording an evening collection of letters therefrom was recently considered, and the result was communicated to the honourable Member in a letter sent to him from the Post Office on the 2nd of last month. The Postmaster General regrets that he is unable to afford the desired accommodation, as the expense involved would be greater than he would be warranted in sanctioning—. (Post Office.)
