HC Deb 23 July 1963 vol 681 c1251
11. Mr. Dempsey

asked the Postmaster- General when he proposes to replace the unsatisfactory post office premises in Airdrie with new offices; where he pro poses to site them; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Mawby

I hope we shall start building a new post office in 1965 on a site in Buchanan Street. This is a smaller site than we should like, but there seems to be no prospect of our getting any other.

Mr. Dempsey

Is the hon. Gentleman aware that I am very grateful to him for the letter which I received today? While I recognise the apparent difficulties, which are considerable, in view of the highly unsatisfactory condition of the present post office arrangements in the town of Airdrie will he do his utmost to bring forward the starting date?

Mr. Mawby

Now that we have decided on the site we shall lose no time in getting the job under way.
