HC Deb 30 March 1897 vol 48 c118
MR. RICHARD M. DANE (Fermanagh, N.)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he is now in a position to state what provision will be made in the new time table for the acceleration of the mails between Dundalk and Enniskillen?

The HON. MEMBER further

asked, whether any decision has yet been arrived at respecting the arrival and dispatch of mails between Enniskillen and Bundoran and the intervening district?


AS already explained in answer to previous Questions in the House, the Post Office would not be justified in calling upon the railway company to run a special train at the public cost from Dundalk to Enniskillen in connection with the day mail train from Dublin, and the same remark applies with even greater force to places beyond Enniskillen, such as Bundoran. The Secretary in Dublin has, however, been instructed to bring before the railway company the strong desire expressed by the inhabitants of the district for an improvement of their day mail service, in the hope that they may see their way to run a suitable train, but the Department has not yet been made acquainted with the decision of the company.

Forward to
