§ MR. M'GOVERN (Cavan, W.)
To ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, if he will say whether inquiries have been made into the question of changing the conveyance of the mails to Glengevlin from the present route via Carrick-on-Shannon and Dawra to Enniskillen and Blacklion as affording a better delivery; and, if so, will he state the result.
(Answer.) Inquiry has been made on the question of serving Glengevlin by way of Enniskillen and Blacklion, as suggested by the hon. Member, instead of from Carriek-on-Shannon and Dawra as at present, but it is found that such a change would not admit of the provision of so good a service as the existing one. Letters from Blacklion and Swanlinbar posted in time for the day mail despatch at 11.40 a.m. and 12 noon respectively should reach Glengevlin on the following morning, and letters and newspapers posted in Dublin in time for the night mail despatch should also reach Glengevlin on the following morning. —(Post Office.)
