HC Deb 27 February 1891 vol 350 c1827
MR. BARTLEY (Islington, N.)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether he is aware that letters from Ireland reaching Euston at 6.15 a.m. are not delivered in Upper Holloway till between 12 and 1 p.m.; and whether he will take steps to secure their delivery by the early morning delivery?


It is the case that in Upper Holloway, as in all the more remote London suburbs, the letters reaching Euston Station by the Irish Mail at 6.15 a.m. are not received in time to be included in the first delivery commencing at about 7.30 a.m. The letters are not sufficiently numerous to warrant a separate delivery, but I will inquire whether it may not be practicable to make the second delivery take place earlier than it does at present.
