§ MR. R. M'GHEE (Louth, S.)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, what further steps, if any, have been taken to provide, as promised last Session, the town of Lurgan with a suitable post office?
§ THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY
The Department has advertised for sites of premises at Lurgan, and four offers have been under consideration, but none of them have proved to be suitable in all respects. In these circumstances the Town Commissioners have been asked whether they can spare a sufficient site on a space which, it is understood, they contemplate acquiring, by purchasing and pulling down some old houses in a fairly central part of the town. No answer has been received to this inquiry.
