HC Deb 10 January 1916 vol 77 cc1266-7
16. Mr. WING

asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware of the inconvenience caused to the public on account of want of space and facilities for postal business at the general post office at Houghton-le-Spring; and what steps are being taken to remedy this state of affairs?


This matter has been under consideration, but it has not been practicable so far to frame any scheme for a new office which, in the present financial position, could be recommended. My right hon. Friend will see whether anything can be done to improve the facilities at the present office. Through the courtesy of the urban district council arrangements have been made for the transaction of separation allowance business at the council's offices
