asked the Postmaster-General why a telegraph pole was erected on land owned by Mrs. D. Pearson, or Redroof, Harrogate Road, Ripon, without her permission; and if he will ensure that permission of the owner is always sought in such cases.

I think there must be some misunderstanding here. My information is that the grass verge on which the pole was erected is part of the public highway. The permission of the Ripon Corporation was obtained in accordance with the usual practice of securing the consent of the owner or highway authority as appropriate.
