HC Deb 27 February 1900 vol 79 cc1220-1
MR. DOOGAN () Tyrone, E.

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he has received a copy of a resolution unanimously agreed to by the Cookstown Board of Guardians at a special meeting held on the 10th inst., complaining of the inadequate postal arrangements existing in Tullyhogue, and pointing out that the foot post leaves Tullyhogue at 8.30 a.m., over 2A hours before the arrival of the next mail for Stewartstown, where the letters lie for 6 hours, namely, till 4.20 p.m., and requesting that the departure of the foot post from Tullyhogue may be delayed for 5½ hours, till 2 p.m., there by giving 3½ hours for answering letters and still leaving a margin of half an hour; and can he state whether the wishes of the people of Cookstown Union as voiced by their representatives will be acceded to.


The despatch of the post from Tullyhogue is already under inquiry. The result shall be communicated to the hon. Member as soon as possible.
