§ MR. JAMES O'CONNOR (Wicklow, W.)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether the memorial from the people of Hacketstown postal district, which reached the Dublin Office on March 14th, has been considered; and whether the Postmaster General has arrived at any decision?
§ MR. HANBURY
The memorial referred to has been considered, and instructions have been given under whish the postman from Hacketstown will wait at Knockanana, after completing his delivery, until 11.20 a.m., instead of returning, as at present, at 8.55 a.m. An interval for replies will thus be afforded, as desired by the memorialists. An extension of three days a week of the free delivery to unserved places in the neighbourhood of Knockanana will at the same time be afforded.
