I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether be is aware that, though the first mail from Newry is due in Poyntzpass, county Armagh, at 7.30 a.m., and the second at 8 a.m., the letters are not delivered till about 8.30 or sometimes 9 o'clock, so that business people have frequently to send to the post office for their letters; and whether be will see that letters are delivered more regularly and expeditiously.

The first mail is due at Poyntzpass by mail car from Newry at 7.30 a.m., the second mail is due at Poyntzpass by train at about 8 a.m., and the delivery of letters should commence at about 8.20 a.m. The circumstances do not appear to justify two separate deliveries, but every effort will be made to have the letters delivered as expeditiously as possible.
