§ MR. PATRICK M'HUGH
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, 1310 whether he is aware that the time for posting letters in the evening in Sligo for Dublin and England and Scotland has been changed from 8.15 p.m to 10.45 p.m. owing to the alteration in the train service; is he aware that no notice, beyond that on an obscure leaflet in a comer of a window of the post office about eight feet above the level of the street, has been given to the public in regard to the change; and, will he instruct the Post Office authorities to give adequate notice as to the change by public placards or advertisements?
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. R. W. HANBURY,) Preston
The Postmaster General is aware that the time for posting letters in the evening at Sligo for Dublin, England and Scotland, has been extended as stated in the Question of the hon. Member owing to an alteration in the train service. A printed notice of the change was exhibited above the letter box in the post office window, and the public were also made aware of the change as far as possible by the clerks at the counter; instructions have been given that any similar change hereafter shall be notified to the public Press.
