HC Deb 25 April 1887 vol 313 cc1780-1

asked the Postmaster General, Whether he has received a largely and influentially signed Memorial from the inhabitants of Letterkenny, County Donegal; whether he has been able to make in- quiries into the justice and soundness of the complaint therein made, as to the unsuitableness of the premises of the present postmaster for the business and the public convenience of the town; and, whether he will take any steps to secure that the postal business shall be conducted in a central, suitable, and convenient situation?

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

, in reply, said, he had not received any such Memorial; but he understood it was the opinion of the Post Office Authorities in Ireland that the premises at present used were suitable; and, so far as he knew, they were certainly convenient. But if he received any such Memorial, or if his hon. Friend wished to press the matter further, he (Mr. Raikes) would make further inquiry.
