HC Deb 19 June 1899 vol 72 cc1489-90
MR. FLAVIN (Kerry, N.)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster-General, whether a petition very largely signed by the people of Clandouglas, Kilfeighney, Pallace, Learn, and other townlands in North Kerry, asking for a house-to-house delivery of letters, has been received by the Secretary of the General Post Office; whether he was aware that great public inconvenience is caused by the non-delivery of letters in those districts; and whether the request of the petitioners will be granted.


A petition was received some time ago asking for a delivery of letters, and a delivery is now being made throughout the district. At Clandouglas, Kilfeighney, and other places the delivery takes place every week-day, but at some of the townlands it is necessarily restricted to two days a week.
