HC Deb 22 March 1894 vol 22 c865
MR. M'CARTAN (Down, S.)

I bog to ask the Postmaster General whether he will make inquiry as to the desirability of establishing telegraph service with Hilltown, which is an important centre in the County of Down?


The question of an extension of the telegraphs to Hilltown was considered in 1891. It was then found that it would not be remunerative, and it could not, therefore, be carried out except under a guarantee, which was not forthcoming. I shall be glad to make renewed inquiry on the subject, and I will communicate the result to the hon. Member.
