HC Deb 08 July 1887 vol 317 c211
MR. BLANE (Armagh, S.)

asked the Postmaster General, If a Memorial from the inhabitants of Dromintee, County Armagh, was forwarded to him, asking that the local post office might be made a money order and telegraph office; and, if he will remedy the inconvenience and loss felt by the people of the district by compliance with the request of the Memorialists?

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

in reply, said, he could not find that any Memorial had been addressed to him on the subject to which the hon. Member referred. An application was made in January of last year to the Secretary of the Post Office in Dublin; and a reply was sent in the following month by that gentleman, to the effect that the circumstances of the case did not warrant compliance with the request of the applicants. He should be very glad to cause a further inquiry to be made, and to communicate the result to the hon. Member.
