HC Deb 03 July 1905 vol 148 c785

I beg to ask the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that in the four townlands in the Virginia, county Cavan, postal district, viz., Crohan, Lurganboy, Carrack, and part of Eighter, letters are delivered only on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays to their great inconvenience; and whether, seeing that all the othertown-lands in the parish have daily deiveries, he will see the desirability of treating the inhabitants of the townlands herein mentioned in the same way.

THE POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Lord STANLEY,) Lancashire, Westl oughton

I have already considered the question of affording a more frequent de very of letters in the townlands mentioned by the hon. Member, but I regret that, owing to the comparatively high cost of the existing service, the additional, expenditure in providing a delivery every weekday would not be warranted.
