HC Deb 16 March 1885 vol 295 c1228

asked the Postmaster General, If the Post Office authorities have as yet decided to establish a telegraph station in the town of Leitrim, taking into consideration the fact that twelve fairs are held annually in that town, and that a most influential memorial calling the attention of the Post Office authorities to this subject, and signed by the entire of the Leitrim Grand Jury, and by traders, farmers, and cattle dealers, was forwarded, several weeks ago, to the Post Office authorities?


The Memorial alluded to by the hon. Member, which was addressed to the Acting Secretary of the Post Office in Dublin, did not reach his hands until the 2nd instant. Inquiries are being made on the subject of the Memorial, and as soon as they are completed I will look into the matter, and see whether it is possible to meet the wishes of the Memorialists.
