§ MR. McCARTAN
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, with reference to an influentially-signed memorial, recently forwarded to him, about the very unsatisfactory postal arrangements with the district of Ballinlea, Moyarget, County Antrim, whether he has yet made inquiry into the matter, and with what result?
§ MR. HANBURY
Inquiry has been made as to the possibility of improving the postal arrangements at Moyarget and Ballinlea, as suggested in the Memorial recently forwarded by the hon. Member. It is found, however, that even the existing service to Moyarget and Ballinlea is conducted at a loss, and the desired improvement could not be effected without largely increasing the deficit. The Postmaster General regrets that he is therefore unable to meet the wishes of the memoralists?
