§ Mr. JOYCE
asked whether any complaints have been made at Bradford about the late delivery of letters arriving there by the Irish mail; whether he is aware that this mail arrives about 6.30 a.m., and the letters are delivered about 11.15 a.m., which is the second delivery; and whether, owing to the inconvenience caused to business men by this late delivery, a change will be made so that letters arriving by this mail may be delivered by the first post in the morning?
§ Mr. BUXTON
No complaints have reached me since 1907, when I arranged for correspondence received in ordinary course at Bradford by the Irish mail to be included in the first delivery in the central district of that town. It is not possible to include in the first delivery the Irish correspondence addressed to other parts of the town, but all Irish correspondence arriving too late for the first delivery may be obtained by the addressees on application at the Post Office at 8.30 a.m.
