§ Mr. WIGNALL
asked the Postmaster-General whether the Crown lands, which include the site of the present 21, Regent Street branch post office, are being 1743W advertised to let by tender with the proviso that the post office must be rehoused on the site of the present No. 17, Regent Street: and whether he will give an assurance that the proposed rebuilding of this branch office is not intended to involve a reduction of the post office facilities in this area?
§ Mr. PEASE
It is the case that the Post Office will have an option to acquire accommodation in the new building for rehousing the 21, Regent Street branch post office. I can assure my hon. Friend that before coming to any decision in the matter the fullest consideration will be given to the requirements of the public.
