HC Deb 17 April 1890 vol 343 cc670-1

I bog to ask the Postmaster General whether he will cause inquiry to be made as to the necessity for a post office at Corduff, County Monaghan, which has a population of 400 families, with chapel, schools, and dispensary, and is situated in a populous district of country, and several miles from a post office?

*THE POSTMASTER GENERAL (Mr. RAIKES,) University of Cambridge

The subject to which the hon. Member refers has been carefully inquired into, and I regret to find that the correspondence which would benefit by the establishment of a Post Office at Corduff is so small in amount as to preclude me from, acceding to the request. The nearest Post Office to Corduff is at Corvally, two and a half miles distant, and the Postal Service in the neighbourhood is now conducted at a loss to the Revenue.
