§ Mr. NEWTON
asked the Postmaster-General if he can now state when the telegraph office at Langham, near Colchester, will be open for business?
§ The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Herbert Samuel)
As I informed the hon. Member on 14th April, there has been difficulty in obtaining wayleaves which I have not yet been able to overcome. The question is not being lost sight of, but I much regret that I am not yet in a position to fix a date for the opening of the office.
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
I should be very much obliged if the hon. Member would use his influence with the landowner who first asked for an extension of the telegraph line, and now refuses to give facilities for its construction.
