§ MR. GILHOOLY (Cork, W.)
asked the Postmaster General, Whether, in view of the fact that an industrial school at Baltimore, County Cork, is to be immediately opened, and that increased mail accommodation is required in the district, he will consider the desirability of having a mail car running daily throughout the year between Skibbereen and Baltimore?
§ THE POSTMASTER GENERAL (Mr. RAIKES) (Cambridge University)
in reply, said, that the mail car between Skibbereen and Baltimore already ran daily during the fishing season—that was to say, from the middle of March to the middle of July. During the remainder of the year the service was by rural postmen. He would cause further inquiry to be made into the question of continuing the daily car service throughout the year; but he thought it well to mention that, when the question was last considered, the correspondence was not sufficient to warrant the additional cost of such an arrangement.
