HC Deb 19 February 1914 vol 58 c1118

asked whether the right hon. Gentleman's attention has been directed to the need for the provision of more extensive post-office accommodation for the borough of Hammersmith in the neighbourhood of the Broadway, and also to the inadequacy of the existing, accommodation in the less central parts of the borough, as at Shepherd's Bush and Starch Green; and, if so, what action he has taken, or proposes to take, in this matter?

Captain NORTON

The need for the provision of improved accommodation at the Hammersmith Branch Post Office is well recognised, and proposals for the provision of a new office have been formulated and are receiving careful consideration. Facilities for dispatching telegrams have been afforded at the Starch Green Post Office since July last, and the accommodation there is considered to be adequate for the requirements. The desirability of providing an office in Shepherd's Bush, devoted entirely to post office business, will be considered at the first opportunity, but I am not yet in a position to say when this is likely to occur. My predecessor informed the Borough Council of Hammersmith to this effect some months ago.
