§ Viscount WOLMER
asked the Postmaster-General the reason why the postal facilities of Farnborough are to be curtailed by the closing down of the North Farnborough post office; and whether be is aware that the district is growing rapidly, and that the proposed step has been condemned by the Farnborough District Council and the Farnborough Chamber of Commerce, and that numerous petitions have been received against it?
§ Mr. HARTSHORN
Although the present Farnborough office is being closed, another office is being opened a short distance away which will provide adequately for the requirements of the district. I have considered the protests which have been made, but I see no sufficient reason for modifying the proposed arrangements.
