HC Deb 29 June 1891 vol 354 c1726

I had intended to ask the Postmaster General whether he has received representations from Arranmore Island, off the coast of Donegal, that the proceeds of the lobster fishery, the earnings of the is land men in Scotland and of the boys and girls in other counties, the wages of the local teachers, and payments for the lifeboat and lighthouse services, and other matters, are all remitted through the post office, and that the necessity of making journeys to the mainland, across a sea often dangerous, involves much loss of time and money as well as great personal inconvenience for the inhabitants, who are over 1,000 in number; and whether he will direct the opening of a money order office on the Island? At the request of the right hon. Gentleman I will postpone the question until tomorrow.
