§ MR. BOLAND
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether any improvement in the mail service between Kenmare and Sneem, County Kerry, will be effected; whether arrangements have been made so as to ensure the arrival of the mail at Sneem at 9.45 a.m., as was formerly the case, and the delays obviated whereby the mail arrives at 11.30 a.m. or in some cases at twelve o'clock.
§ THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY To THE TREASURY (Mr. AUSTEN CHAMBERLAIN,) Worcestershire, E.
Since November last it has been found necessary to postpone the arrival of the mail at Sneem by twenty minutes owing to the increased bulk of the mails conveyed by the car from Kenmare. The mails are sometimes late owing to the late running of the train to Headfort Junction, but every effort is made to maintain punctuality as far as possible. The Postmaster General regrets that it is not practicable to accelerate the service to Sneem.
