HC Deb 26 July 1894 vol 27 cc1023-4
MR. MILDMAY (Devon, Totnes)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether, with a view to completing the coast communication between Start Bay and Dartmouth (the nearest port for tug-power and lifeboat service), he has any intention of continuing the telegraph wire from Torcross to Strete?


It is part of the scheme of coast communication that a telephone wire should be constructed between the Coastguard Stations at Dartmouth and Torcross; but it cannot be carried out because of the refusal of wayleave on Slapton Sands. Should this difficulty at any time be removed, the question of providing the wire will again be considered.
