POSTMASTERSHIP OP MILTON, ONTARIO.

CON

Mr. HENDERSON asked :

Conservative (1867-1942)

1. How long has the postmastership of Milton, Ont., been vacant ?

2. Is it the intention of the government to fill such vacancy before the holding of the next provincial elections in Ontario ?

The POSTMASTER GENERAL (Hon. Wm. Mulock).

There is no post office 5J

known as Milton in the province of Ontario. There is an office of that name, but it is situated in the united counties of Shelburne and Queens, and the office of postmaster there is not vacant. Perhaps my hon. friend refers to the post office in the county town of Halton, and if he means that, it is known in the Post Office Department as Milton East. If that is the post office to which the hon. gentleman alludes, I will be happy to consider the question so amended and will give the information another day.
