HC Deb 08 November 1911 vol 30 cc1782-3W

asked the Postmaster-General whether Money Order and Savings Bank business is now being carried on at Victoria Station on the London, Brighton, and South Coast Railway; and, if so, whether established staff employed by the Post Office are engaged on these duties; whether it is intended to extend the practice; and if he will state the reasons for the departure from the official declaration made in April, 1910, that no necessity existed for the establishment of post offices at railway stations?


Money Order business is being carried on at the Victoria Station Post Office; Savings Bank business is not. Post Office staff is not employed. The work is carried on by the railway company's servants on the condition applicable to the smaller sub-post offices. The question of opening similar offices on other railway stations in London is being considered. I do not think it necessary to open full branch post offices at railway stations.
