HC Deb 25 May 1903 vol 122 cc1636-7

I beg to ask the Postmaster-General, having regard to the fact that the Wapping Telegraph Office, situated at Old Gravel Lane, east of Wapping Bridge, is not available to firms in business west of the bridge on the occasions when the bridge is open, will he take such steps as may be necessary to secure the establishment of a telegraph office in Wapping west of the bridge.


As I informed the hon. Member by letter last month I shall be quite willing to remedy the inconvenience complained of if any reasonable method of so doing can be devised, but up to the present no premises suitable for a post office and centrally situated can be found. I also suggested to the hon. Member that some of the firms having suitable premises in the district might think it desirable to offer facilities for the establishment of a post office, but apparently the suggestion has not been taken up.
