HC Deb 25 April 1907 vol 173 c243
MR. DELANY (Queen's County, Ossory)

To ask the Postmaster-General if he is aware that the proposed structural alterations in the Dublin post office have been temporarily abandoned, and that the present building is totally inadequate for the amount of business to be transacted; and, in view of the fact that every reform asked for by the staff for the past five years has been postponed until the office is rebuilt, can he definitely state when the re-building is to be commenced.

(Answered by Mr. Sydney Buxton.) It is not the case that the proposed structural alterations in the General Post Office in Dublin have been temporarily abandoned. On the contrary a large extension of the building has recently been sanctioned; but some minor points have still to be settled. I hope that the Board of Public Works will shortly be in a position to proceed with the preliminary arrangements for carrying out the work.
