§ 89. Mr. JOYCE
asked the Postmaster-General whether his attention has been called to a memorial sent by the inhabitants of the Irishtown ward, in the city of Limerick, asking that a sub-post office be established in this ward; is he aware that this memorial has been extensively signed by the principal people in. this ward, including clergymen, traders, shopkeepers, and householders; and, seeing that there is a population of about 5,000 persons in this ward, that the want of a post office is a drawback to the people, and taking all the circumstances into account, whether a sub-post office will be granted to this ward?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
Inquiries are being made in the matter, and returns of the work done are being taken, but I am not yet in a position to state whether I should be justified in complying with the wishes of the memorialists.
