HC Deb 25 January 1897 vol 45 c401

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he is aware that two memorials signed by the representative inhabitants of the locality have been forwarded to the heads of the Postal Department, praying for the establishment of a post office in the village of Trosses, Donegal; whether it has been brought to his notice that under present arrangements much inconvenience is occasioned by the distance from Trosses of a post office, the letters being brought from Inver and left at the house of Mr. Charles Campbell, who also receives letters to be sent to Inver, and supplies stamps to the amount on an average of £2 per week; and whether the Postmaster General will sanction the establishment of a post office in Trosses, which would materially conduce to the benefit of a large district?


It cannot be found that any memorials have recently been received for the establishment of a post office at Trosses, Donegal. An application was made in 1894, when it appeared on inquiry that the amount of correspondence was not nearly sufficient to justify the establishment of an office. Inquiry shall again, however, be made, and the result communicated to the hon. Member.
