§ 28. Mr. HANCOCK
asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware that the post office at Greenhill Lane, Derbyshire, which has been open during the last sixty-five years, is now being closed; and whether, seeing that the local council is strongly and unanimously opposed to the closing and that inconvenience will be caused to a large population, he will issue instructions for it to remain open as hitherto?
§ Mr. JOSEPH PEASE
The office was closed on the occurrence of a vacancy because the business done was small. There are two other offices in opposite directions little more than half a mile away, and a letter box is being provided near the site of the office which has been closed. I do not see any sufficient ground for incurring the expense of reopening the office.
