§ *MR. STRACHEY (Somersetshire, S.)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, 284 whether he is aware of a strong feeling at South Petherton, Somerset, against the removal of the post office there to another part of the parish, and whether he will take the opinion of the parish council of South Petherton as to this change.
§ MR. AUSTEN CHAMBERLAIN
The removal of the South Petherton Post Office to its present site, which is central and convenient, was authorised after full consideration of the circumstances, and the Postmaster General sees no reason for departing from the decision arrived at. Within the last few days a memorial' from a considerable number of the inhabitants has been received in favour of the retention of the office in the new position.
