§ 40. Mr. FFRENCH
asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware that the postal arrangements at several villages in South Wexford, in the neighbourhood of the Great Southern and Western Railway, is unsatisfactory; will he look into the matter with a view to giving a second delivery; and is he aware that by utilising the railway a second delivery would incur little or no increased cost?
§ Mr. HOBHOUSE
As the hon. Member is aware, a scheme was prepared in 1908 for giving a second delivery at these villages, but it was abandoned on account of the general opposition of the residents, as expressed by the local authorities. The second delivery cannot be given without substantial increase of expenditure, but I will consider the application again if it were supported by the local authorities?
§ Mr. FFRENCH
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the local authorities feel very differently, now?
