HC Deb 07 July 1902 vol 110 cc939-40
MR. T. W. RUSSELL (Tyrone, S.)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether his attention has been called to the non-delivery of a letter addressed to the manager of Moran's Hotel, Dublin, the words "hotel demolished" being officially marked on the letter by the Post Office authorities; and whether he will inquire into the reasons for this action, in view of the position of this hotel.


The address on the letter referred to was unfortunately misread in the Dublin Post Office for Morrison's Hotel—an establishment, which was pulled down about a year ago. An inspection of the envelope does not, in the opinion of the Postmaster General, justify the mistake, and I have to express regret on his behalf that it should have occurred.
