HC Deb 26 April 1898 vol 56 c1220

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he is aware that there is no delivery of letters on Sundays in the town of Lucan, county of Dublin, or in the vicinity of that place, although Lucan is but seven miles distant from Dublin and is connected with Dublin by one tramway and two railways; and, if so, whether steps will be taken to remedy this defect in the present postal arrangements in the county of Dublin?


There was formerly a special delivery at Lucan on Saturday evenings of letters brought by the Dublin night mail, which made a delivery on Sunday unnecessary. Recent changes have made the continuance of the Saturday evening delivery impracticable, and the Postmaster General has therefore given instructions for a delivery by postman to be made at Lucan on Sunday mornings, as requested by the honourable Member.
