§ MR. E. BARRY (Cork Co., S.)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that the train service in West Cork is inadequate and insufficient to meet the requirements of that extensive and populous district; and whether, in view of the existing defective postal service in West Cork, he will compel the Railway Directors to give such train accommodation as would facilitate the Postmaster General in improving the present defective postal arrangements?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE (Mr. MUNDELLA, Sheffield, Brightside)
Complaints have been made with regard to the train service in this district; and if I receive some specific statement from the inhabitants of the increased facilities they require, I will use my good offices with the Railway Company on their behalf. The question of the postal arrangements is one for my right hon. Friend the Postmaster General.
