HC Deb 30 July 1897 vol 51 c1600

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether his attention has been called to the fact that 1s. is charged for porterage for the delivery of telegrams from Gweedore, at Crolly Bridge Hotel, the distance being two Irish miles, or within the free delivery of telegrams; and whether the Postmaster General will take immediate steps to secure the free delivery of telegrams at Crolly Bridge Hotel?


Yes. The subject of the hon. Member's Question has been inquired into on a representation from the proprietor of the hotel. It appears that the distance was reputed to be more than three miles, but it has now been ascertained to be less, and instructions have been given that telegrams for the hotel are to be delivered free.
