HC Deb 27 November 1890 vol 349 c119
MR. BRUNNER (Cheshire, Northwich)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General how many times this year the mails from the North have missed the Great Western train timed to leave Bristol for the South at or about 10 a.m., and what means he has of preventing or diminishing the inconvenience caused to the public by the irregularity of this mail?

THE POSTMASTER GENERAL (Mr. RAIKES, cambridge University)

I do not quite follow the hon. Member's question, but I think he must refer to the connection at Bristol between the mail train from the North due at 5.45 a.m. and the train leaving at 6.10 a.m., which takes forward the North Mail letters for Hampshire when they reach Bristol punctually. If the hon. Member will let me know at what towns the inconvenience complained of arises I will inquire fully into the matter.
