HC Deb 07 May 1908 vol 188 c443

I beg to ask the Postmaster-General whether arrangements can be made whereby letters from county Down and county Louth for Bangor, North Wales, may be sent by the Greenore route and sorted at Bangor, thus avoiding the delay caused in delivery by sending them to Crewe and then back again to Bangor; and whether letters intended for delivery between Greencastle and Kilkeel, county Down, could be sorted so as to secure delivery on the day of arrival, instead of being kept overnight at Kilkeel and then sent back to Greencastle.


I regret to find that a despatch for Bangor such as that suggested would not be justified owing to the small amount of correspondence affected. Letters from England for the districts referred to do not arrive in time for the morning delivery, and as a second delivery is not warranted, no improvement can, I fear, be made in this service. The letters may, however, be obtained by callers at the Kilkeel and Ballyardle Post Offices.
