HC Deb 23 March 1900 vol 81 cc188-9
SIR T. G. ESMONDE (Kerry, W.)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, if the Post Office will agree to a re-arrangement of the Sunday trains on the Dublin, Wicklow, and Wexford Railway, so as to enable travellers from Wexford on Sundays to reach London on Monday mornings, instead of their being obliged, as they are under the existing arrangements, to leave Wexford on Saturday afternoon to be in London on Monday morning.


The only Sunday train from Wexford to Dublin which is under the control of the Postmaster General is the night mail train leaving Wexford at 8.15 p.m., and the railway company are therefore at liberty to make what alterations they may deem desirable in the hours of any other train. No facilities beyond those afforded by the night mail train are required on this line for the mail service on Sundays.
