asked the Postmaster-General if he will give the post office of Tunstall, Stoke-on-Trent, the necessary authority to deliver telegrams, so as to facilitate delivery and remove the congestion now caused at the present office of delivery in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent?

The arrangement recently introduced, under which telegrams for Tunstall are delivered by cycle messengers from the Burslem office, entails no delay and provides much more satisfactory accommodation for the messengers. I am informed that there is no congestion at the Burslem office; and accordingly I can see no good reason for reverting to the earlier arrangement.

Might I tell the Noble Lord that I have just received intimations from fishmongers and people dealing in perishable goods, that their telegrams have been held up for one hour by the Post Office?

I shall be very glad to confer with the hon. Member, and go into any cases.
