HC Deb 31 July 1896 vol 43 c1264

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, if he has received a Resolution from the Limerick Chamber of Commerce directing attention to the serious loss to the trade of the city in consequence of the frequent late arrival of the morning mails, and requesting the Postmaster General to make arrangements for the running of a special train from Limerick Junction to Limerick when the morning mail train is late; and, whether the postal authorities can see their way to remedying the grievances complained of?


The Postmaster-General has received a copy of the Resolution referred to. The contract for the mail service on the Waterford, Limerick and Western Railway is now under revision, and the question of the connection between the mail trains at Limerick Junction will be considered in the negotiations with the Company for a new contract.
