HC Deb 03 February 1949 vol 460 cc266-7W
Sir H. Lucas-Tooth

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that the postal facilities in the Golders Green area are inadequate, and in particular that the Golders Green post office is quite inadequate in size for the volume of business transacted; and what steps he is taking to improve the situation.

Mr. Hobson

Under existing conditions the standard of postal facilities provided in the Golders Green area generally compares not unfavourably with that in other similar localities in London. I am fully aware, and regret, that the accommodation at the Golders Green branch post office is inadequate. Such improvements as were practicable within the confines of the present premises have already been made. The intention is to provide larger premises or, alternatively, to relieve pressure on the existing accommodation by opening an additional office if suitable premises can be found, and the search is being vigorously prosecuted.
