MR. SWIFT MACXEILL
I beg to ask the Postmaster-General whether his attention has been called to the incon-†See (4) Debates, civ,, 711.602 venience and dislocation of business entailed by the fact that there is no midday delivery of letters in Ardara, county Donegal, where there is a large if not a larger number of letters on the average than in some of the neighboring towns in which there are raid-day deliveries; and whether, having regard to the advantages resulting to the trade of the town by the establishment of a mid-day delivery, he will see his way to the granting of this privilege to Ardara, and the placing of this town on terms of equal advantage with the other towns of this district in the means of postal communication.
§ THE POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. SYDNEY BUXTON, Tower Hamlets, Poplar)
As the hon. Member is aware, I made inquiry a short time ago respecting the postal service at Ardara, The cost of the service is already so high that I should not be justified in extending the existing facilities at the public expense.
