19. Major Lloyd
asked the Postmaster-General what progress is being made for the provision of a sub-post office to meet the long-standing and genuine needs of the residents of the Ralston district of East Renfrewshire.
§ Mr. Wilfred Paling
I much regret that it is still not possible to re-open the Ralston sub-post office owing to the continued lack of a suitable applicant for the vacant sub-postmastership. However, I am hopeful that it will be possible reasonably soon to open a sub-post office near to the site of the former Cardonald sub-post office when the facilities for transaction of Post Office business by the Ralston residents will be materially improved.
