HC Deb 06 May 1901 vol 93 c781

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, will he explain why the letters carried by the mid-day train arriving at Glenties, county Donegal, at about 12.30 p.m., are not delivered until the next day, and will steps be taken to have the letters delivered a reasonable time after and on the day of their arrival in Glenties; and, if any complaints have reached the Postmaster General as to the negligence of the railway companies in carrying the mails by this mid-day train, and how often during the past two years have the railway companies failed to carry the mails.


The Postmaster General is having inquiry made, and he will cause the result to be communicated to the hon. Member as soon as possible.
