§ 28. Mr. GINNELL
asked the Postmaster-General if he has ascertained whether the recruiting, taxing and other Departments of Government in Ireland concur in the use that is being made of the Post Office in the West of Ireland against the Irish language, imperatively ordering Irish speakers to speak English and, if unable, refusing to attend to them unless they find an interpreter; will he say under what law peaceable Irish taxpayers are denied the common right of the postal service; and, if he disapproves of this conduct of those public servants, what remedy he proposes to introduce at all such places in the western counties as Maam Cross?
§ The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. J. A. Pease)
If the hon. Member will furnish me with particulars of any case in which an Irish person unable to speak the English language has been unable to gain attention at an Irish Post Office, I shall be pleased to inquire into the matter.
