HC Deb 23 November 1916 vol 87 cc1648-9W

asked the Postmaster-General if he has caused inquiries to be made into the alteration of the night mail delivery service for Castletown and Mountrath postal districts, which has caused loss and inconvenience to the people of these districts; and, if so, is he prepared to restore the former night mail service?


The only alteration which has been made is the discontinuance in February last of the early morning trip of the mail car from Kilbricken Station to Mountrath Post Office, with the result that a certain number of letters from the South and West of Ireland formerly delivered by first post fall into the mid-day delivery in the village and into the delivery of the following morning in outlying parts. I regret that I am unable to incur the expense involved in restoring the early morning trip.
