§ MR. FFRENCH (Wexford, S.)
I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether he is aware that in several of the country districts served from Wexford Post Office the first delivery of letters does not take place until 1.30 p.m.; if such late deliveries are due to the irregular working of the mail train between Dublin and Wexford; whether the said train very often takes 11 hours and a-half to do a journey of about 92 miles; and if steps will be taken to remedy this unsatisfactory state of affairs?
§ MR. A. MORLEY
It is true that in: a portion of the outlying district of 1640 Wexford the delivery is as late as the hour mentioned, and the lateness is in a measure due to the irregular working of the mail train. My Department is in communication with the Railway Company on the subject, and I understand that the Company are taking steps for securing a punctual working of the train.
