HC Deb 24 February 1948 vol 447 c315W
105. Mr. Beswick

asked the Postmaster-General what progress has been made in providing a Crown post office for East-cote, Middlesex, in accordance with advice given to the hon. Member for Uxbridge in a letter dated 12th May, 1947.

Mr. Hobson

Premises suitable for use as a Crown post office are held on requisition and negotiations for a lease are proceeding satisfactorily. I fear that difficulties with regard to supply of manpower and materials will, however, preclude the opening of the new office for some time to come.
