§ 72. Mr. McKay
asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware that a post office was promised for the West Longbenton Estate, Newcastle, a year ago, and that there are no indications of its erection and that there is discontent about this matter; and if he will give a definite date for its establishment.
§ Mr. Marples
I share the anxiety of the residents of the estate in this matter, but I cannot open a post office until there is a shop in which to put it. As soon as we have news of the completion of the first shops, I will let the hon. Member know when the post office will be opened.
