HC Deb 06 September 1887 vol 320 c1356
MR. TUITE () (for Mr. HAYDEN) () Leitrim, S.

asked the Postmaster General, Whether Drumsna is a sorting office for Kilmore and Hillotree; whether the day mails from Drumsna for Dublin are forwarded direct from that station; whether the night mails are first sent into Carrick-on-Shannon, passing by the Drumsna Railway Station to Dublin four hours after; and, whether he will so arrange that the night mails will be forwarded direct as the day mails now are, and thus give the people of the three districts named a much longer time within which to write their correspondence?

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

I undertook, on the 1st instant, to have inquiry made in Ireland on the several points embraced in the hon. Member's Question; but there has not been time for a Report to be furnished, or to give to the matter, which involves detail, the consideration which must precede a decision. There shall be no unnecessary delay.
