MR. CHANCE (Kilkenny, S.)

asked the Postmaster General, Whether letters reaching Borris, county Kilkenny, by the morning mail at 10.3 a.m. are not delivered in Graigue (five miles distant) till 2.15 p.m.; whether letters intended for the Irish and English night mails must be posted at Graigue, county Kil- kenny, before 9.20 a.m., for the purpose of reaching Borris (five miles distant) for the mail train leaving for Dublin at 3.30 p.m.; whether, owing to representations made by the inhabitants of Graigue, the late Government promised to establish a car service between Graigue and Borris, and enable the letters arriving by the morning mail to be answered the same day; and, why this promise has not been fulfilled?

THE POSTMASTER GENERAL (Mr. RAIKES) (Cambridge University)

said, there had not been time since the Question was put upon the Paper to obtain the information necessary to enable him to answer it.
