HC Deb 10 March 1898 vol 54 c1240

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, if he can see his way to have a special mail bag made up of all letters posted in London before 4.30 for Belfast forwarded by the Euston express train leaving at 5.30, arriving in Liverpool in time to catch the steamer leaving for Belfast at 10.30, and arriving there at 6 o'clock a.m. Sunday morning, when letters could be sorted and ready for delivery to callers at post office between the hours of 8 to 10 o'clock a.m.?


A bag for Belfast is already forwarded by the train leaving Euston at 5.30 p.m. on Saturday, as on every other week-day, for transmission to Belfast by the steamer viâ Fleetwood, which is due at Belfast about 6 a.m. The letters arriving on Sunday morning are delivered to callers at the Post Office between the hours of 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. The Liverpool steamer, which is not used by the Post Office, is not due at Belfast until 8.30 a.m.
