HC Deb 15 February 1898 vol 53 cc624-5

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether he can state the reasons which induced the Post Office authorities to refuse consent to the opening of a sub-post-office in the house of Owen O'Brien, of Legeelan, in the Blacklion postal district; and whether, before coming to their decision, careful inquiry was made by the Post-office officials as to the necessity for such office?


It was found that the correspondence for Legeelan and the neighbourhool was not sufficiently large to justify the establishment of a sub-post-office. Careful inquiry was made by Post Office officials as to the necessity for such office before the decision was arrived at. I may repeat, however, what I stated last August, that arrangements were sanctioned for extending to Legeelan and the neighbourhood the official delivery of letters on two days a week.
