§ MR. DOOGAN (Tyrone, E.)
I beg to ask the Postmaster-General whether he has recently received copies of resolutions passed by the urban councils of Dungannon, Omagh, Cookstown, Strabane, and Armagh in favour of an evening postal service via Greenore and Holyhead, whereby an extension of two hours would be given to all towns lying between Londonderry and Greenore for posting their English letters; and whether, in the interests of Ulster generally, he will consider the desirability of establishing such service.
§ THE POSTMASTER - GENERAL (Lord STANLEY, Lancashire, Westhoughton)
Many of the local authorities in the North of Ireland have applied to me for a service to England by way of Greenore, and only last week I received an influential deputation on the subject. I am now making further inquiry as to the possibility of meeting their wishes, and I will in due course communicate my decision to the hon. Member.
