HC Deb 25 May 1891 vol 353 cc973-4
DR. TANNER (Cork Co., Mid)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General what is the average weekly revenue derived from letters received in and sent from Bere Island, County Cork; and whether increased postal facilities can be accorded the inhabitants of this district?


The average weekly revenue from the letters received in Bere Island is a little over 4s. a week. There is no record of the letters sent from the Island. I regret that a more frequent Postal Service cannot be afforded without adding materially to the present deficiency of revenue.
