HC Deb 26 February 1903 vol 118 cc915-6

To ask the Postmaster General whether he is aware that letters which should have been delivered at Ballyshannon at 8.30 a.m. on the 18th February were not delivered till 11.30 on that day; and whether, seeing that there is a line of railway through the district which the mail car traverses, he will take steps to improve the postal service at Ballyshannon, and secure expedition in the delivery of letters by causing their carriage to be by rail instead of by mail car.

(Answered by Mr. Austen Chamberlain.) I will make inquiry as to the delay in delivery of letters at Ballyshannon referred to by the hon. Member, and also as to the possibility of improving the postal service to that place, and I will communicate the result to him as soon as possible, but the inquiry will probably occupy some time.
