HC Deb 23 August 1894 vol 29 cc385-6

I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether, in arranging for future contracts for the conveyance of mails between Dublin and Belfast, provision will be made for the convey- ance of third-class passengers by limited mail trains?


There is no clause in any existing contract with a Railway Company compelling them to convey third-class passengers by mail trains, and I cannot think that it is the duty of the Post Office to introduce a clause of such a character into a contract for the conveyance of mails.
