§ MR. JASPER TULLY (Leitrim, S.)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether, in accordance with the memorial received from the inhabitants of Ballinamore District, South Leitrim, he will appoint Michael Fee as sub-postmaster in Deradda, and thus remedy the public inconvenience which has been occasioned owing to no permanent appointment of sub-postmaster being made in that locality?
§ MR. HANBURY
The letters for Deradda are few in number, and a considerable loss is already incurred in sending out the letters to that place. The 1069 additional cost of providing a post office at Deradda would not be warranted, and the Postmaster General had no alternative but to refuse the memorial referred to by the hon. Member.
