HC Deb 07 March 1904 vol 131 cc307-8
MR. J. P. FARRELL (Longford, N.)

I beg to ask the Postmaster-General whether he will explain why Longford town and county post offices have been placed under the charge of the surveyors of the Ulster district instead of, as hitherto, under Dublin and Sligo district; and whether any economy was the result of this change.


Longford and other towns served by the Mullingar and Sligo Branch of the Midland Railway were recently transferred from the control of the Surveyor of the Midland District to the control of the Surveyor of the Northern District in order to equalise as far as possible the size of the two Districts with a view to promoting greater efficiency and economy.
