§ Mr. FRANCIS MEEHAN
asked the Postmaster-General whether he has received a memorial from the people of the parish of Killavoggy, county Leitrim, asking for a morning collection and a Sunday delivery of letters at the Beagh post office; and whether, having regard to the inconvenience caused through the want of the said collection and delivery, and to the slight expense necessary to remedy the twenty-four hours' delay to letters, he will make inquiries with a view of setting the matter right?
§ The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Herbert Samuel)
I have received the Memorial. The application is for an evening collection, a morning collection being already afforded. The cost of providing the evening collection and Sunday delivery would amount to over £20 a year; and, as the existing service costs far more than it brings in, I should not, I regret, be justified in complying with the request?
