HC Deb 03 May 1887 vol 314 c684

asked the Postmaster General, Whether he has received a largely-signed Memorial from inhabitants of Ballyshan-non; whether he has inquired into the foundation of the complaint made, as to the premises of the present Postmaster being unsuitable for the business and the convenience of the public; and, if he shall find it advisable, whether he will take steps to secure that the postal business shall be conducted in a more suitable and convenient situation?

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

I have received the Memorial referred to, and inquiry has been made on its subject by the District Surveyor. The Ballyshannon Office being vacant, the opportunity will be taken to remove it from the Mall, where it has been for some years, and place it in a more convenient position. I think no reasonable objection can be taken to the proposed site; for, although Mr. Mitchell's premises are in the south side of the town, they are within a few minutes' walk of the principal business establishments. A letter box will be placed in the main street at the corner of the Mall.
