§ MR. DALY
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he is aware that there are very unsatisfactory postal arrangements at Cortubber, Laton, Aughnamullen, and Creive, convenient to Ballybay; and whether he can state when the house-to-house delivery of letters will take place in the district mentioned?
§ MR. HANBURY
The Postmaster General is not aware that there are very unsatisfactory postal arrangements at Cortubber and the other places mentioned near Ballybay, county Monaghan, which appear already to possess a morning delivery and an afternoon despatch; but if, as he understands, the honourable Member's Question relates to outlying houses in the neighbourhood to which the delivery has not yet been extended, inquiry shall be made with the view or extending the delivery to any unserved 789 houses as soon as possible. It was never anticipated, however, that the whole Budget reforms could be carried out within a year.
