HC Deb 07 December 1911 vol 32 c1584

asked the Postmaster-General whether his attention has been called to a request from the Bridgwater Chamber of Commerce asking for an extension of the time for receiving and delivering telegrams at the head office, Bridgwater, from 8 p.m. until 10 p.m.; and whether he can see his way to grant this request, so as to put Bridgwater on the same footing in this respect as some other river-port towns, and also Taunton?

The POSTMASTER - GENERAL (Mr. Herbert Samuel)

I cannot agree to keep the Bridgwater Office open till 10 p.m., but I am willing to arrange for the acceptance and delivery of telegrams up to 9.0 p.m., the present hour of closing.
