HC Deb 18 May 1905 vol 146 cc770-1

I beg to ask the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that, some time ago, letters from Belleek, Pettigo, Kesh, and Irvinestown were delivered in Enniskillen about two o'clock in the afternoon, and that now letters from these towns are not delivered in Enniskillen till about 8.20 p.m., when business of the day is over; and will he state why the early delivery was abandoned; and whether he will arrange to have the letters delivered at the former time.


It is the fact that until about a year ago mail bags were despatched to Enniskillen from the places referred to at about midday, but it was then found that so little use was made of the service by the public that the maintenance of the bags was not warranted. Instructions were therefore given for their discontinuance, and I regret that I am unable to restore them.
