HC Deb 09 March 1925 vol 181 c938

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, if he is aware that the offices for the County Court of Lancashire, held at Rochdale, are unsuitable and in a bad state of repair; and, as suitable accommodation can be provided on the premises now occupied by the Rochdale post office, will he consider the advisability of removing the County Court offices to those now occupied by the post office as soon as the latter remove to the new post office now in course of erection?


The County Court offices are not provided by the Office of Works, but by the Registrar in return of an allowance. Search for alternative premises has been made for some time past, both by the Registrar and by the Office of Works, but without success. The old post office will not be available for nearly two years.
