HC Deb 10 March 1892 vol 2 c535
MR. GILHOOLY (Cork Co., W.)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether tenders have been invited for a mail car service from Castletown Berehaven to Lehanmore; whether he has received a tender to give such service at the same or even less remuneration than is paid at present to two rural messengers; and whether, in view of the fact that a mail car service will be a great convenience to that district at no extra expense to the State, he will at once sanction it before the fishing season commences?


Tenders have not been invited for a mail car service, and no tender has been received for such a service at the same rate as that now paid or for less. The posts in this neighbourhood already entail a loss on the Revenue, and no arrangement is practicable for securing the improvement desired.


Will the right hon. Gentleman be prepared to consider any proposal which may be laid before him on the subject?
