HC Deb 22 June 1904 vol 136 cc827-8

I beg to ask the Postmaster-General if he will direct that the former system of daily delivery of letters to houses in Killoe parish be reverted to instead of a four days a week delivery as is now the rule.


I find, on inquiry, that prior to the commencement of the present arrangement for serving the houses in Killoe parish to which the hon. Member refers, there was no official delivery at all at those houses. The letters were left at other houses on the route of the postman, and were called for by school children and others. I regret to find that the cost of the present service four days a week is so high in comparison with the revenue from the correspondence, that I should not be justified in affording a daily delivery.
