HC Deb 26 February 1894 vol 21 cc1047-8
MR. T. B. CURRAN (Kilkenny)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether he is aware that the evening mail from Loudon and England generally reaches Limerick Junction at 9.52 a.m. on the following day, and is brought from thence to Tipperary by a Limerick and Waterford Railway train—another line; and that if the mail train from Dublin is late, as frequently happens, the Waterford and Limerick train departs without the letters, and the inhabitants do not receive their letters until two or three hours later; and whether, in such a case, the Post Office will go to the small expense of a car from Limerick Junction to Tipperary with the letters?


I am aware of the circumstances to which the hon. Member calls attention, and I have given directions for a mail car to be used from Limerick Junction to Tipperary in future, when a serious delay of the mails would be avoided thereby?
