Communications Regulation (Postal Services) Bill 2010 [Seanad]: Second Stage (Resumed)
Olivia Mitchell (Dublin South, Fine Gael)
That is only one example. There are dozens of others where the system will be fought tooth and nail if it is based on the current lettering and numbering in Dublin.
The introduction of a system which is completely valueless and whereby it does not matter or people do not know whether one lives in L, X or Y78, would be far better. It would break away from the system which makes one area more desirable than another. We should consider using a GPS based on latitude and longitude from this point of view as well.
I welcome the Bill and I am pleased to have had the opportunity to speak on it. I will submit an amendment related to the possibility under the current system that we are losing jobs to other postal services and countries. This matter must be examined.
