§ MR. G. A. HARDY (Suffolk, Stowmarket)
To ask the Postmaster-General, why the Newmarket post office is registered as a Cambridgeshire office, when the whole of Newmarket for administrative purposes is in Suffolk; and which county benefits in its county rate from the revenue derived from the Newmarket office.
(Answered by Mr. Sydney Buxton.) So far as the Post Office is concerned, Newmarket, like all other head offices, is not registered under any county. The Post Office revenue is paid into the Exchequer. The revenue derived from licences sold by the department on behalf of the Inland Revenue is paid to the Inland Revenue Department.
