HC Deb 08 June 1915 vol 72 c181

asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware that the inhabitants of Coachford, near Cork, are restricted to one postal delivery daily and that letters for that district lie in Cork from 11 a.m. till the next morning; if a second delivery could be arranged by sending a mail-bag out from Cork by the train which leaves at 2.40, at a cost which would not exceed 3s. a week; and if he will give instructions for this additional facility to be afforded?


The existing postal service in the Coachford district is carried on at a heavy loss, and I regret that I am therefore unable to sanction the provision of a second delivery, the expense of which—I may add—would not be limited to the cost of conveyance of the mail-bag by railway.
