HC Deb 07 July 1898 vol 61 c161

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he is aware that the late acceleration of mails from Dundalk has conferred no benefit upon the people of Clones, as the letters are delayed two hours after their arrival in the Clones post office, and are not delivered till commercial and other gentlemen have had to leave by train for their day's business; and will he take steps to remedy the grievance complained of without delay?


The Postmaster General is aware that there is at present no delivery of letters by postmen at Clones immediately following the arrival of the mails from Dundalk, which have recently been accelerated. The question of readjusting the deliveries at Clones is, however, under consideration.
