§ Sir WILLIAM BYLES
asked the Postmaster-General whether he has received a petition asking for a telegraph and telephone call office at the Camp Street Post Office in Broughton, which is situated at a central point in a populous neighbourhood; and will he consider the same favourably?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
I have received the petition and have authorised the establishment of a call office at the post office in question. The establishment of a telegraph office would not be warranted2101W
but the public will be able to dictate telegrams from the call office, and this, I hope, will to a great extent meet their requirements.
