HC Deb 21 March 1906 vol 154 c397

I beg to ask the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that dissatisfaction prevails in Athy, county Kildare, with the inadequate accommodation provided both for the public and staff in the present post office premises; can he say what length of time has elapsed since the post office authorities advertised for a site on which to erect a suitable structure; how many replies have been received, and when, offering suitable sites; whether he is aware that inconvenience has arisen owing to the delay in making choice of a site; and can he say when a decision will be arrived at.


The unsuitability of the post office accommodation in Athy is recognised, and advertisements for a site for a new office were issued about two years ago. No offers were received at the time, but three have since been received, and are under consideration. I hope it will be possible to come to a decision in the matter very shortly.
