HC Deb 23 June 1902 vol 109 cc1392-3
MR. FFRENCH (Wexford, S.)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he is aware that dissatisfaction prevails in the parish of Ramsgrange, and the surrounding district owing to the postal arrangements; and whether he can arrange that the English mails should go by way of Waterford as at present, and the principal portion of the mails be sent by way of Wexford, with a post ear running between Foulksmill and Fethard, so that the delivery of the latter would be at ten o'clock in the morning instead of three o'clock in the, afternoon, as at present.


In a letter sent to the hon. Member from the Post Office on the 28th of February last, it was explained that it would not be practicable to serve the district in question partly from Waterford and partly from Wexford, and the Postmaster General fears that it will not be feasible to adopt the hon. Member's suggestion but he will have further enquiry made on the subject.


But would it not result in a saving to the Post Office, if my suggestions were carried out?


I am not aware of that. At any rate the Postmaster General considers it would not be feasible. If the hon. Member has any further information, and will communicate it to the Postmaster General, that may be the best way of bringing the matter to a satisfactory conclusion.
