§ MR. J. WARD
I beg to ask the Postmaster-General whether he has caused inquiry to be made into the accommodation provided for the staff and the performance of their duties at the Stoke-on-Trent Post Office; whether any report has been made as the result of such inquiry; and what action, if any, he proposes to take to meet the immediate needs of the locality.
§ MR. SYDNEY BUXTON
A new office is to be provided at Stoke-on-Trent, and I am endeavouring to expedite the settlement of the case, for I know from personal observation how much they are required. It is essential that the office should be close to the railway station 422 and the negotiations with the railway company have unfortunately been somewhat protracted.
