§ 58. Mr. MacLAREN
asked the Postmaster-General if he will give the post 573 office of Tunstall, Stoke-on-Trent, the necessary authority to deliver telegrams, so as to facilitate delivery and remove the congestion now caused at the present office of delivery in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent?
§ Viscount WOLMER
The arrangement recently introduced, under which telegrams for Tunstall are delivered by cycle messengers from the Burslem office, entails no delay and provides much more satisfactory accommodation for the messengers. I am informed that there is no congestion at the Burslem office; and accordingly I can see no good reason for reverting to the earlier arrangement.
§ Mr. MacLAREN
Might I tell the Noble Lord that I have just received intimations from fishmongers and people dealing in perishable goods, that their telegrams have been held up for one hour by the Post Office?
