HC Deb 09 May 1898 vol 57 cc685-6
MR. S. YOUNG (Cavan, E.)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether any arrangements have yet been made to provide for an early collection of letters at Andersonstown, now within the borough of Belfast, so that letters the same morning of collection may be in time for first delivery in that city; and, if nothing has yet been done, what is the cause of delay?


Arrangements have not been made to provide an early collection of letters at Andersonstown, as inquiry shows that the expense would not be warranted. In February last great improvements were introduced both in the collections and deliveries at Andersonstown, although, according to the strict rules which regulate these services, they were hardly justified by the extent of the business.
