HC Deb 09 June 1904 vol 135 c1226
MR. HUNT () Shropshire, Ludlow

I beg to ask the Postmaster-General whether, in view of the fact that there is no post or telegraph office in the parish of Astley Abbotts, Shropshire, with a population of over 600, and that the inhabitants on an average live about; or more than three miles from any post or telegraph office, he could see his way to allowing a post and telegraph office to be set up there.

THE POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Lord Stanley,) Lancashire, Westhoughton

I will have inquiry made on the question; of establishing a post and telegraph office at Astley Abbotts Shropshire, and will communicate the result to the hon. Member. May I ask that more notice should be given me privately of Questions such as this, as it is obviously impossible in the short notice given to make inquiries sufficient to enable me to answer fully.
