§ Mr. WIGNALL
asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware of the serious inconvenience caused to the residents of Tutnalls, Lydney, Gloucestershire, through the want of a sub-post office at Tutnalls; is he aware that during recent years the population of this district has increased and is likely to continue doing so for some considerable time; and, since the post and telegraph office are more than a mile away, will he take steps so that a sub-post office with telegraph facilities is established in the area?
§ Mr. HARTSHORN
I regret that the volume of postal and telegraph business likely to be transacted would not justify the establishment of a sub-post office at Tutnalls. There is an existing sub-office within a distance of half a mile and the telegraph requirements of the district seem to be adequately met by the Lydney head post office.
