Mr. Tustin:

Possibly the minister will recall that last year I brought to his attention the fact that it was necessary to modernize or renovate the post office at Napanee. At that time I understood him to say that he would have a look at that proposal. Whether he has taken a look or not, I am not sure; but I know that nothing has been done to

date. I just want to bring the matter to his attention again. It is necessary that the post office at Napanee should be modernized on the interior. The area around that part of my constituency is developing quickly. I feel that the staff in the post office are doing an excellent job under existing conditions. How they are able to keep pace with the work, under the conditions under which they are obliged to work, is something that is beyond me. I should like to urge again that the minister take a look at the situation. It would not be an expensive job. In this unforeseen improvements vote I think he would have enough money to do it.
