§ Mr. O'SHAUGHNESSY
asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that for a considerable number of years an evening postal service has existed between Ballysteen sub-post office and Askeaton, county Limerick, a postman leaving the former at 6.20 o'clock p.m., but for the last three months the service has been discontinued, with the result that the people between Ballysteen and Askeaton, a large population, the distance between the places being nearly four statute miles, have been inconvenienced thereby; whether he is aware that a petition, setting out the grievance in question and signed by the principal inhabitants, was sent to the postmaster in Limerick requesting a return to the old arrangements, which had given general satisfaction; and whether he will now, as the local people request, have the old arrangements continued?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
I am having inquiry made in the matter, and I will communicate the result to the hon. Member.
