§ 80. Sir W. DAVISON
asked the Postmaster-General whether he has received a petition, signed by over 500 electors in South Kensington, asking that the post office at 4, Stratford Road, S.W., should be reopened; and what action he is taking in the matter?
§ Mr. KELLAWAY
I have received the petition, and I regret that with due regard to economy I am unable to comply with it. There are seven post offices in the locality, of which three are within about 600 yards of the Stratford Road site.
§ Sir W. DAVISON
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that this post office, which was in existence for 60 years before the War, has always been self-supporting, and that there is no other post office within half a mile of it?
