§ Mr. J. P. FARRELL
asked the Postmaster-General, whether, in connection with the free delivery of telegrams within the three-mile limit, the local postmaster is to compute the distance as from the office to the residence of the person by the ordinary public road leading from one place to the other, or as the crow flies in a straight line across country to the person's house; and whether any complaint has been received on the matter from local sub-offices in county Longford?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
The distance is computed not as the crow flies, but by the shortest route ordinarily available. I1298W have not received any complaint in the matter from local sub-offices in county Longford.
