§ MR. SAMUEL YOUNG
I beg to ask the Postmaster-General whether he has ascertained that, for the delivery of letters daily to Lisnagoon and Drumrade districts, which are now served from Maudabawn, county Cavan, the postmen in the neighbouring district would include the delivery of these for 3s. 6d. or 4s. a week additional pay; and, if so, what steps he proposes to take.
The cost of a daily delivery of letters in the Lisnagoon and Drumbrade districts would probably not 786 exceed 3s. 6d. or 4s. a week as stated by the hon. Member; but as the number of letters, postcards, etc., for those districts does not in the aggregate exceed about twelve weekly, I should not be justified in incurring an expense of even 3s. 6d. a week for delivering them.
