HC Deb 30 March 1896 vol 39 c382

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether the new line of railway from Galway to Clifden has yet been utilised for the carriage of the mails; and, if not, what is the cause of the delay, and when will an arrangement be come to on the matter?


There are no trains running on the line at hours suitable for the night mail, but the Department is considering whether any advantage would accrue from using the Company's trains for the day mail. It is not clear that they afford any advantage over the existing road service.
