HC Deb 19 August 1895 vol 36 c265

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether his attention has been called to the repeated delays in the mail service to the North of Ireland, via Stranraer and Larne, occurring chiefly between Carlisle and Stranraer; whether any steps will be taken to secure regularity; and whether he will consent to the return on the subject on the Paper for this day?


The working of the Stranraer and Larne service is carefully watched day by day, and if any serious irregularity occurs representations are made to the companies in fault. Such representations have been made during the present month, and it is hoped that they will have a good effect. There is no objection to furnishing the return asked for by the hon. Member, and it is now being prepared for the four months from April 1 to the 31st ult. ["Hear, hear!"]
