§ 85. Mr. TILLETT
asked the Postmaster-General whether he has personally considered the claims of the County Borough of Salford with reference to the addressing of letters; and is he aware that it has been suggested that all letters addressed to Salford shall first be sent to Salford, Lancashire, a county borough of a quarter of a million inhabitants, and not to the small villages bearing a similar name?
§ Captain KING
My right hon. Friend has received representations from the Salford Town Council on this question, and has given instructions that letters addressed simply "Salford" are to be sent to Salford, Manchester, unless posted in the immediate neighbourhood of one of the other Salfords. These instructions merely confirm the existing practice.
§ Mr. W. GREENWOOD
Did the hon. and gallant Gentleman say Salford, Manchester, or Salford, Lancashire?
