HC Deb 23 October 1902 vol 113 cc595-6

To ask the Postmaster General if he has received any communication from the Ballina Urban Council relating to the proposed change of the post office in that town to a new site.

(Answered by Mr. Austen Chamberlain.) I have received a communication from the urban district council of Ballina maintaining their objection to the removal of the post office from Knox Street to King Street, and suggesting the purchase of a site in Knox Street and the erection of a new building. This, however, is an arrangement which would be more expensive than the circumstances justify; the King Street scheme has therefore been sanctioned.
