§ 66. Mr. FARRELL
asked the Postmaster-General whether he has further considered the question of a mid-day postal delivery to Granard in accordance 731 with the promise contained in his letter to the hon. Member for North Longford; and to what decision has he come?
§ The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. J. A. Pease)
The mid-day post to Granard has been suspended in pursuance of the general policy of restricting postal facilities in the interests of economy, and I fear that the cost of maintaining two posts a day could not be justified. But arrangements can be made to substitute a midday delivery (which would include the morning newspapers and day mail letters) for the present night mail delivery, if that course is desired by the residents generally and their wishes are expressed through the local authority.
§ Mr. FARRELL
When the right hon. Gentleman says "suspend," are we to take it that in future it may be resumed?
§ 67. Mr. LYNCH
asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that the mail service to Kilrush and other parts of West Clare is in an unsatisfactory condition, and that inconvenience has been caused to traders in consequence; and whether he will see that proper arrangements are instituted whereby the West Clare Railway Company may be enabled to supply the mail service as heretofore?
