§ Mr. Spearman
asked the Postmaster-General if he will take immediate steps to restore the sub-post office at Ruswarp, and, if there is any delay, to improvise some arrangement in view of the inconvenience to the village in not having a post office, particularly near Christmas.
§ Mr. Ness Edwards
I regret that it has not yet been possible to find a suitable236W candidate for the vacant sub-postmastership at Ruswarp. The postal clerk who already attends in the village for two hours on Fridays to pay pensions and allowances and to transact other Post Office business will, however, for the period 18th to 23rd December, inclusive, be in attendance for a period up to five hours daily.
