HC Deb 04 February 1904 vol 129 c356

I beg to ask the Postmaster-General whether any steps have yet been taken to fulfil the promise of his predecessor to supply horse haulage for mails and parcels between Longford Post Office and the railway station; and, if not, can he state the reason why the promise of his predecessor has not been given effect to.

THE POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Lord STANLEY,) Lancashire, Westhoughton

As stated to the hon. Member in a letter from the Post Office dated the 8th October last, I have sanctioned the employment of a horse and cart on the service in question. I am not aware that any difficulty has since arisen in the matter, but I am making inquiry and will communicate the result to the hon. Member.
