HC Deb 15 February 1900 vol 79 cc94-5
MR. HAYDEN () Roscommon, S.

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he is aware that letters for Four Roads, County Roscommon, and district, arriving by limited mail at about 9.30 each morning are brought by mail car to Athleague, which is within three miles of that place, and kept there until next morning when they are brought by letter carrier, being thus delayed for over twenty hours within throe miles of their I destination; and whether he will consider the advisability of establishing a second delivery between Athleague and Four Roads, or as an alternative, one delivery embracing the two mails, and also an extension of the house to house delivery in the district.


The Postmaster General is making inquiry with the view of ascertaining whether any improvement can be made in the postal service to Four Roads, County Roscommon, and what arrangements are needed for completing the extension of the house-to-house delivery in the district. It is necessary to take returns of the correspondence, and this will occupy some time; but the Postmaster General will let the hon. Member know as soon as possible what can be done in the matter.
