§ MR. MAURICE BROOKS
asked the Postmaster General, If he could state how often during the past twelve months have the English mails viâ Holyhead and Kingstown been late for the morning mail train leaving Kingsbridge at 9 a.m.; and, what has been the cause assigned to the Post Office for the delay?
§ MR. FAWCETT
Sir, in reply to my hon. Friend, I may state that, during the past 12 months, the English mails, viâ Holyhead and Kingstown, have been late for the morning mail train leaving Kingsbridge at 9 a.m. only eight times. Storm has been assigned on six occasions a3 the cause of delay; fog on one occasion; and a train accident on another.
