§ Mr. TOOTILL
asked the Pastmaster General when the new post office at Bolton will be opened for the transaction of business; and whether the postal, telephone, and telegraph business will commence simultaneously?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
The new building may be completed about the beginning of 1916. The postal and telegraph business will probably be moved to it at one and the same time, but, in view of the necessity for economy, it is proposed to defer the transfer of the telephones, which will involve considerable expense.
