rose to ask the Secretary of the Treasury, Why it was that the Dublin Post Office was closed at 5.30 p.m., instead of 6 p.m., as formerly; and he wished also to ask whether the Government were prepared to make any remonstrance with respect to the increased fares charged by the Companies who are in receipt of the postal subsidy for the conveyance of passengers between Dublin and London viâ Holyhead. He complained that the fares had been raised from £2 7s. 6d. to £3 2s. 6d., greatly to the inconvenience of the Irish people, who were prevented from coming to the Exhibition.
