HC Deb 11 February 1908 vol 183 c1509
MR. RICHARDSON (Nottingham, S.)

To ask the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that the principal sub-post office in Nottingham, situated on the Derby Road, was burnt down in October of last year; that the nearest sub-post office from which the inhabitants of that neighbourhood can get a halfpenny stamp or send a parcel by post is three-quarters of a mile in one direction and half a mile in another; and will he take immediate steps for opening a sub-post office in this populous centre, and, thus prevent a continuance of this inconvenience.

(Answered by Mr. Sydney Buxton.) The office to which the hon. Member refers was re-opened yesterday. I approved the appointment of the new sub-postmaster on 11th January, but he could not be installed until certain structural alterations had been made in the premises he offered.
