HC Deb 07 June 1887 vol 315 cc1223-4
MR. DILLON (Mayo, E.)

asked the Postmaster General, What is the cause of delay in completing the telegraph line to Charlestown, County Mayo; and, whether he will cause the line to be immediately completed?

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

, in reply, said, the telegraph line to Charles-town was erected some time ago; but owing to a question having arisen as to certain irregularities in the post office there it was thought advisable to defer the completion of the extension. The extension had now been finished, and the office was opened for telegraphic business that day.
