HC Deb 04 February 1929 vol 224 c1391

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department, as representing the First Commissioner of Works the value of the old post office premises at Carlisle and the rent paid for these premises during the period the whole building was rented by the State control; if any portion is still rented by the State control; and the total rent now being received for the premises?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Sir William Joynson-Hicks)

I have been asked to reply to this question. As my hon. and gallant Friend was informed in answer to a question on the 20th December, 1927, the freehold of the old Post Office premises was purchased by the Secretary of State from the Postmaster-General in 1924, and no question of the payment of rent arises.
