HC Deb 30 June 1879 vol 247 c950

asked the Postmaster General, Whether he has received a Memorial asking for further postal accommodation at Dooleague Post Office, County Mayo; and, if so, whether he will be able to accede to the request of the Memorialists; whether he is aware that, by the abolition of the money order office in Mulranny, County Mayo, much inconvenience is caused to the poor people of the district, who have to travel over twenty miles to get remittances cashed which are sent by their friends engaged at the harvest in England; and, whether he will order the re-opening of the money order office at Mulranny?


I received a Memorial on the subject of the hon. Member's Question on Friday last, and sent it to. Ireland for investigation. As soon as I receive it back it will receive attention. With reference to the second part of the Question, the office has been temporarily closed owing to the dismissal of the Postmaster. A new appointment has now taken place, however, and the office will be re-opened immediately.
