§ MR. THOMAS HEALY (Wexford, N.)
I beg to ask the Postmaster General if there is in Ireland any other group of towns of similar importance to the towns of Wexford, Enniscorthy, and New Ross, similarly circumstanced with regard to distance from Kingstown, as badly served in the delivery of English mails?
§ SIR J. FERGUSSON
It may be that many towns of less importance than those named enjoy a better mail service, because their position gives them the benefit of a good through service. There are not express trains on the Dublin, Wicklow and Wexford line. The Railway Company does not appear to think the traffic sufficient to afford them, and the amount of the correspondence in the district would not warrant the Post Office in paying for fast mail trains.
