CEISTEANNA—QUESTIONS. ORAL ANSWERS. - TRANSPORT FACILITIES IN CORK.

asked the Postmaster-General whether, with a view to opening up the district between Fermoy and Cork via Watergrasshill and via Glenville, an area which has no railway service, he is prepared to entertain and discuss a local proposal which will give a daily passenger, parcel, and postal service, at little increased cost on the existing arrangements, which provide only postal facilities of much less convenience to the public than the scheme suggested will supply.

I have recently received from the Deputy an outline of the scheme he advocates, and I am having it carefully examined, and will communicate with him further on the subject as soon as practicable.
