HC Deb 08 July 1897 vol 50 c1344
MR. J. L. CAREW (Dublin, College Green)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, why the second mail for Rathangan, county Kildare, is not sent out from Kildare at the same time as the mails for Fontstown, Dunmurry, and Lackagh, viz., at 8.10 a.m. instead of at 9 a.m.?


The reason is that the improved service to Rathangan cannot be arranged without additional expense, which is not warranted, as the existing service is conducted at a loss to the Revenue; while in the other three cases it was found practicable to improve the service without incurring expense.
