HC Deb 18 December 1963 vol 686 c1236
18. Miss Herbison

asked the Postmaster-General where in Shotts he proposes to erect a Crown post office; and when work will begin on its construction.

Mr. Mawby

The Crown post office will be erected in Shottskirk Road, Dykehead. Construction work should begin in April, 1964.

Miss Herbison

Will the Assistant Postmaster-General ensure that it really does begin in April and that it is finished as quickly as possible, since this is a growth area and it would be a great help if there were adequate postal facilities in the area?

Mr. Mawby

The hon. Lady raised this matter some time ago in a supplementary question. I promised that we would try to bring the scheme forward as much as possible. In fact, I have only been able to make marginal improvements, but I can assure her that the building will commence in April next year and we shall certainly seek to move forward as fast as possible.
