MR. P. O'BRIEN (Monaghan, E.)
asked the Postmaster General, Whether he has received a Memorial from the inhabitants of Drumswoods and its vicinity, a thickly-populated district in the County of Monaghan, four miles distant from a post office, praying for the establishment of a post office at Drumswoods; and, whether he intends complying with the prayer of the Memorialists; and, if not, can he say for what reason?
§ THE POSTMASTER GENERAL (Mr. RAIKES) (Cambridge University)
A Memorial has been received. The post already established in the vicinity of Drumswoods is conducted at a loss, and the Drumswoods letters are too few to cover the additional expense which compliance with the Memorial would involve. I have, however, offered to establish a post office under guarantee, and I await the reply of the Memorialists.
