§ MR. PIRIE (Aberdeen, N.)
I beg to ask the Postmaster-General whether, seeing that the postal re-arrangements in Aberdeen, necessitated by the opening of the new post office, have now been some time in operation, he will cause inquiries to be made before the autumn session, and before the framing of next year's Estimates, with a view to securing for Woodside district an evening postal service as in other parts of the city, and also as to the desirability of complying with a petition sent praying for the establishment of a sub-post office near the Spital to supply a much needed and increasing demand.
§ MR. SYDNEY BUXTON
The application for the establishment of a sub-post office near the Spital, Aberdeen, was duly considered, but as there is already a sub-post office less than 400 yards from the suggested site and a letter-box about 185 yards, the existing facilities appear to be adequate for the present requirements of the public in the locality. As regards Woodside, the amount of correspondence appears to be hardly sufficient to justify the establishment of an evening delivery in that district, but I will further inquire into the question.
