HC Deb 04 August 1896 vol 43 c1441
MR. S. YOUNG (Cavan, E.)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, with reference to extending to Belfast an opportunity of having letters written there on Saturday evening or the forenoon on Sunday delivered in London on Monday morning, whether he will have a postal pillar or special box placed at the Great Northern Railway station wherein letters could be posted on Sunday before the departure of the 2 o'clock train for Dublin, which now runs in connection with the mail boats for passengers; and whether he is aware that such an arrangement would contribute largely to the convenience of the public without involving much, if any, additional Sunday labour to the postal officials?


The question raised by the hon. Member is receiving consideration. The arrangement desired would, no doubt, prove of some public convenience.
