HC Deb 30 October 1884 vol 293 c535

asked the President of the Board of Trade, If the great difficulty of communicating with Tory Island after the recent disaster to the Wasp has proved the necessity of at once establishing telegraphic communications with the lighthouse on that Island?


, in reply, said, that Tory Island had upwards of 300 inhabitants, and was nearly 800 acres in extent. The question of telegraphic communication was one rather for the consideration of the Postmaster General than for the Lighthouse Authorities.
