HC Deb 25 March 1897 vol 47 c1299
MR. S. YOUNG (Cavan, E.)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he has received a memorial asking for a branch post office at Bogeskey, a few miles from Bailieborough, county Cavan; whether he is aware that, although the district is very populous, there is not a post office within a radius of three miles of this place, in consequence of which the people of the neighbourhood are greatly inconvenienced; and, whether the Department, in view of the urgent need of postal accommodation in this district, have taken any steps to supply the want?


The Postmaster General has received the memorial referred to, and the question of establishing a post office at Bogeskey is under inquiry. The Postmaster General is not aware of the population the district, but he is advised that Bogeskey is only two and not three miles from the nearest office. The necessary returns are not quite complete, but the result of the Inquiry, when arrived at, shall be communicated to the hon. Member.
