HC Deb 12 May 1891 vol 353 cc567-8
MR. COLLERY (Sligo Co., N.)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether passengers are not allowed to travel by the 9 o'clock p.m. mail train from Sligo to Dublin; and, if so, whether, in view of the great inconvenience of persons not being able to leave Sligo for Dublin later than the ordinary 4 p.m. train, he will exercise his influence with the Midland Great Western Railway Company to allow passengers to travel by the mail?


The mail train referred to by the hon. Member runs at hours fixed by the Post Office under the general contract with the Railway Company, and carries goods but not passengers. The question of allowing passengers to travel by it is one for the company, with whom I cannot pretend to have any such influence as the hon. Member is good enough to attribute to me.
