HC Deb 13 May 1907 vol 174 cc587-8

To ask the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that a post office at Brackey, county Tyrone, has recently been closed; is he aware that inconvenience has been caused to those residing in the district; why was this

(Answered by Mr. John Burns.) I have made inquiry on this subject and find that the figures are asfollows:—

post office closed; and, seeing that the present post office is located in a cotter's house, will he have the whole matter reconsidered in the interests of the public convenience.

(Answered by Mr. Sydney Buxton.) The late sub-postmistress of Brackey resigned in November last, and a successor, whose premises are quite close to the old office, was immediately employed to carry on the work, and has since been appointed. I am informed that the position of the existing office is convenient for the locality which the office is intended to serve.
