HC Deb 24 October 1918 vol 110 cc944-5W

asked the Postmaster-General whether it is contemplated in the immediate future to restore a two-mail service per twenty-four hours between England and Ireland; whether he is aware that, under existing circumstances, it takes a letter two and sometimes three days to reach its destination either way; and whether he will consider the possibility of making temporary arrangements to either give a second day-boat each way or change existing hours of arrival and departure to secure a better service?


It is contemplated that a two-mail service both ways per twenty-four hours between England and Ireland, by way of Holyhead and Kingstown, shall be restored as soon as the City of Dublin Steam Packet boat, which has been withdrawn for overhaul, is again available. It is hoped that she will be available very shortly.
