HC Deb 30 June 1913 vol 54 c1489

asked the Postmaster-General, whether he is aware that the people of Gurteen, Ballinasloe, county Galway, suffer loss and inconvenience in consequence of their letters not being sent direct from the Ballymacward post office to the Gurteen post office, so that they would arrive at 7.30 a.m. instead of 9.15 a.m., as now, which makes it impossible for replies to be sent by the morning mail to Dublin; whether this delay is caused by the Duke de Stackpoole's letters being sent through Ballymacward instead of Glentane, Ballymacward being eleven miles from the duke's residence while Glentane is only three; and will he direct that a rearrangement of the postal service in this district should be made?


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