§ 69. Mr. COURTHOPE
asked the Post master-General whether he has recently received communications from the council of the Borough of Bexhill requesting that the status of the Bexhill Post Office may be raised to that of a head office; and whether, in view of the growing postal business of this town, he can see his way to grant the council's request?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
This question has been frequently considered, and has been reviewed in connection with a recent application from the Borough Council of 1008 Bexhill, but I regret that I do not see my way to meet the council's wishes. The change desired would not be advantageous from an administrative point of view, and would not carry with it any improvement in the facilities afforded to the public.
