HC Deb 06 July 1926 vol 197 c1866
30. Mr. HARDIE

asked the Postmaster-General if any developments are taking place for better post office accommodation for the Springburn district, Glasgow?

The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Sir William Mitchell-Thomson)

In the absence of suitable alternative premises for the Springburn Town Sub-office, it has been necessary to renew the lease of the existing premises for a further year from Whit Sunday last. Quite recently, however, my attention was drawn to premises which, while suitably situated, contain a much larger area than is required for the purpose of this particular office, and the possibility of devising an economical scheme for using these premises is at present under examination.


Can the other parts not be used as a garage?


As I have said, the suggested premises are too big for a post office, but the possibility of using part of them for this purpose and part for other purposes of the Service is under consideration.
