asked the Postmaster-General if certain expense is to be incurred in redecorating the interior of the post office at Totnes; if it may be assumed, in consequence, that there is no prospect of a commencement being made in building the new post office; and if the sum it is proposed to spend in these decorations can be utilised instead to defray some of the expenses of building the new post office on the site already acquired and prepared for that purpose?

Certain essential internal renovations to the Totncs post office, are being undertaken, as financial provision cannot be made for work on the new post office to be begun this year. The cost of this maintenance work is considerably less than 1 per cent. of the estimated cost of the proposed new building.
