HC Deb 12 December 1912 vol 45 cc769-70
72 and 73. Mr. O'DOHERTY

asked the Postmaster-General (1) whether he is aware of the defective mail service between Moville and England and Scotland, as it takes a letter two nights to reach these places respectively; whether he will have such changes effected in the motor mail service as to enable the Scotch and English mails which arrive, at Londonderry at 10 a.m., to be delivered in Moville before 4 p.m., thus giving time for replying the same evening and delivery in England and Scotland the following day; and whether this improvement, could be effected by making the hours of the mail motor 12.30 noon for leaving Londonderry, and 4.30 p.m. for leaving Moville; and (2) whether he is aware that the mails between Londonderry and Moville since the 1st October have been almost continually late, thus causing inconvenience to the public; whether he is aware that on 30th November the mails that were due at Londonderry at 7.15 p.m. did not arrive there until 9.6 p.m.; that on 2nd December the mails that were due at Moville at 7.30 a.m. did not reach there until 11 a.m.; and that no mails were sent from Moville at 8.50 a.m., the usual time for dispatch, thus causing serious disappointment to business people and others; and whether he will see that these grievances are remedied?


I am having inquiry made and I will communicate with the hon. Member.
