§ MR. JOSEPH DEVLIN (Kilkenny, N.)
To ask the Postmaster-General whether he would state the percentage of business 965 transacted in the post offices of Bangor, county Down, and of Portrush and of Bally-money, county Antrim, respectively; and, seeing that the postal authorities find that the offices in Ballymoney and Portrush are too small for the volume of business, whether the authorities are contemplating the enlargement of the office accommodation in these latter towns in the near future.
(Answered by Lord Stanley). The hon. Member's Question necessitates some local inquiry, which is being made. I will communicate the result to him as soon as possible.
