HC Deb 14 December 1908 vol 198 c1279
MR. GILHOOLY (Cork County, W.)

I beg to ask the Postmaster-General whether his attention has been called to the defective postal arrangements at Castletown Bere; whether he is aware that business people in the town who do not reside near the post office are debarred from answering letters by return of post; and, if so, seeing that Castletown Bere is a naval base and an important fishing station, he will take immediate steps to provide better postal arrangements for it.


I will make further inquiry into the question of improving the postal service to Castletown Bere; but, for the reasons explained in my Answer to the Hon. Member's previous Question on the subject on 18th May last, I can, hold out little hope that it will be found practicable to provide an improved service.
