HC Deb 13 March 1912 vol 35 c1106

asked the Postmaster-General what arrangements, if any, had been made by the Dublin postal authorities to ensure the prompt dispatch of shamrock packets for delivery in Great Britain on or before 17th March next; and is he aware that the arrangements last year were of such an inadequate nature that a number of shamrock packets were not delivered at their destinations in Great Britain until two days after St. Patrick's Day?


Special arrangements have been made, but their success is, of course, dependent on the provision of the usual railway facilities, which will, I fear, be more and more curtailed if the coal strike continues. I cannot agree that the arrangements made last year were so inadequate as the hon. Member suggests.
