HC Deb 19 May 1903 vol 122 cc1094-5
MR. O'DOWD (Sligo, S.)

I beg to ask the Postmaster-General, whether his attention has been directed to a memorial forwarded in June of last year from the Castlebaldwin district of county Sligo to the effect that letters posted in Sligo could not be delivered in the neighbouring county of Roscommon until two days afterwards; and, if so, will he state what steps, if any, are being taken to remove this grievance.


I have looked into the official Papers relating to the memorial referred to by the hon. Member, forwarded in June of last year by certain residents in South Sligo, and I find that an answer was sent to the hon. Member from my Department on the 6th August last to the effect that it was not practicable to improve the postal service between the districts in question. I will, however, make further inquiry on the subject and I will communicate the result to the hon. Member as soon as possible.
