§ MR. HUGH LAW (Donegal, W.)
; To ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he is aware that upwards of 1,100 letters and parcels were delivered during the year 1901 at Cruit Island, Kincasslagh, County Donegal; and whether he can arrange to meet the wish of the inhabitants, numbering fifty-two families, for a daily service of letters.
121 (Answered by Mr. Austen Chamberlain.) No record has been kept by the Post Office of the number of letters and parcels delivered during the year 1901 at Cruit Island, Kincasslagh, County Donegal; but assuming the hon. Member's figures to be correct, the Postmaster General fears that he would not be warranted in incurring additional expenditure for the purpose of affording a daily delivery in lieu of the existing delivery on four days a week.
