MR. O'KEEFFE (Limerick)
I beg to ask the Postmaster General, having regard to repeated complaints, if he would direct that the same number of men should be employed to deliver letters on Sunday mornings as on ordinary week mornings in the City of Limerick, in order to ensure similar early delivery; and, if he would have additional hands engaged to relieve the town postmen, as is done at present for same service on alternate Sundays in the Limerick postal rural district?
§ * MR. RAIKES
I will inquire respecting the Sunday delivery arrangements at Limerick, and communicate the result to the hon. Member as soon as I am in a position to do so. The general rules of the service should, of course, be followed at Limerick as elsewhere, and if it is found that these have been departed from either as regards the time of completing the delivery, or as to relieving the postmen from Sunday duty, the necessary instructions shall be given for placing the arrangements upon a proper footing.
