THE EARL OF LONGFORD (for the Earl of BELMORE)
asked the Postmaster General, Whether he had considered the possibility of sending the night mails from Enniskillen to England, Scotland, Dublin, &c, by rail, instead of, as at present, by road viâ Omagh; and whether he could state what would be the additional cost?
§ THE POSTMASTER GENERAL (Lord WOLVERTON)
said, that he hoped to have been able to give the noble Earl a final answer to his Question; but the terms demanded by the Railway Company for the performance of the new service had hitherto been such as to preclude a favourable consideration of the arrangement. He had, however, made a counter offer to the Company, which he trusted the Directors would see their way to accept.
