HC Deb 24 July 1912 vol 41 cc1168-9
71. Captain JESSEL

asked the Postmaster-General whether the old Post Office buildings at the corner of Newgate Street and St. Martin's-le-Grand are to be pulled down; if so, whether it is proposed to erect new buildings on the present building line; and whether the opportunities for future street improvements at this important corner have been considered?

The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Herbert Samuel)

The old Post Office, which is being pulled down, is not at the corner of Newgate Street, but is bounded by St. Martin's-le-Grand, Gresham Street, and Foster Lane. New buildings are to be erected on the site. It would be for the Corporation of London to make any suggestion with regard to street improvements. If they desire to do so, I shall be prepared to confer with them.
