§ MR. O'MARA (Kilkenny, S.)
To ask the Postmaster-General whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that the morning mail from Dublin is not delivered in the townships of Mullinavat, Kilmacow, or Mooncoin until late in the afternoon, whereas the train bearing these letters stops at all stations; 355 and whether, in view of the small extra cost involved, he will have letters for these stations sorted in Dublin or en route and delivered on arrival of the morning mail train.
(Answered by Lord Stanley.) I have made inquiry on the question of establishing an additional service such as that suggested by the hon. Member, but I find that the cost of the existing service is so high that I should not be justified in incurring the expense necessary for meeting the hon. Member's wishes in the matter.
