§ Mr. Owen
asked the Postmaster-General when he expects the rebuilding of Ashington Post Office to be completed; and whether he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Bevins
The new public office at Ashington has been in use since August. It is, I believe, a marked improvement on the old premises. It may be possible for the new sorting office to be occupied before Christmas, although I do not now expect the rebuilding as a whole to be completed until some time in January.
