HC Deb 13 April 1891 vol 352 c370
MR. THOMAS DICKSON (Dublin, St. Stephen's Green)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General if he is aware that Dublin and Belfast are not connected by telephone; and if he will take into consideration the urgent necessity which exists for establishing telephonic communication between these two important cities?


In reply to the hon. Member, I have to say that no public demand for a telephone service between Dublin and Belfast has hitherto been communicated to the Post Office; but if the hon. Member has reason to think that there is such a demand and will communicate with me, I shall be glad to give the matter my best consideration.
