§ MR. ARTHUR O'CONNOR
beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether a memorial has been 1073 received from Newtown Cunningham, in Country Donegal, urging reconsideration of the answer given last year to mi application for further postal facilities in that district; and whether the Postmaster General has yet decided to accede to the request?
§ MR. HANBURY
A memorial has been received from Newtown Cunningham, Co. Donegal, urging a reconsideration of the answer given last year to an application for further postal facilities. The Postmaster General was glad to be able last year to accelerate the morning delivery at Newton Cunningham by about an hour, and thus to meet to some extent the wishes of the memorialists. But the establishment of a second post, which would involve additional expense, was not found to be warranted, the cost of maintaining the existing service already absorbing the whole postal revenue available. The circumstances have in no way altered since the question, was previously considered, and the Postmaster General is still unable to accede to the memorialists' request.
