§ Mr. FIELD
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether he can state the reason of delay in reconstructing the General Post Office, Dublin; and whether he will arrange that the work shall be commenced at once, with the necessary structural improvements in the temporary sorting, telegraph, and parcel offices?
§ Mr. PEASE
The reconstruction of the General Post Office at Dublin involves a number of problems. Consideration of these is being expedited as far as possible, but I regret I am unable at present to say when operations are likely to be begun. Various suggestions made by the staff for improving the comfort of the temporary premises are being attended to as far as practicable.
