HC Deb 20 June 1878 vol 240 c1885

asked the Postmaster General, Whether he has considered the memorial from the Grand Jury of the county of Longford, praying for the extension of telegraphic communication to the town of Granard, and can hold out hopes that such extension will be conceded?


Sir, the question has been considered, but the revenue which it is estimated would be produced by a telegraphic office at Granard would not justify its establishment at the public expense. If the inhabitants will join in giving a guarantee against loss, the extension will be made.
