HC Deb 08 July 1924 vol 175 c1989W

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that a notice is now exhibited in the Berkeley Post Office, Gloucestershire, asking for applications for the appointment of sub-postmaster or sub-mistress who are prepared to provide suitable premises at Berkeley; that there are now in Berkeley modern premises, specially erected for use as a post office, which are both central and convenient and were erected about 1908; and that such premises, with five years' lease still to run, are available for postal purposes; and will he, in making any appointment, have regard to these facts?


The facts are as stated by the hon. Member. The question of the possibiity of transferring to the incoming sub-postmaster the lease of the premises in which the post office business is at present conducted will be borne in mind when the new appointment is made.
