HC Deb 26 August 1887 vol 320 cc8-9
MR. BIGGAR (Cavan, W.)

asked the Postmaster General, Whether he is aware there is a weekly market and monthly fair in Kilnaleck, County Cavan; and, whether, under the circumstances, he is prepared to make it a post office telegraph station?

THE POSTMASTER GENERAL (Mr. RAIKES) (Cambridge University)

, in reply, said, that the question of opening the Kilnaleck Post Office for the transaction of telegraph business was con sidered in May of this year, and it was estimated that the receipts would fall far short of the working expenses. The Memorialists were, therefore, informed that the office, as in other similar cases, could only be established under the guarantee of £39 for seven years.
