CEISTEANNA—QUESTIONS. - DELIVERY OF LETTERS AND PARCELS (CHRISTMAS EVE).

To ask the Postmaster-General whether he can see his way to make provision for a delivery of letters and parcels on Christmas Eve throughout Saorstát Eireann, or at least in the urban districts.

A general delivery of letters and parcels will be afforded on Sunday, the 24th inst., except in some remote districts where this cannot be arranged owing to limited train facilities, but these districts will share in the general delivery of letters and parcels which will be afforded throughout Saorstát Eireann on Christmas Day.
