HC Deb 24 April 1896 vol 39 c1630
MR. S. YOUNG (Cavan, E.)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether complaints have reached him of the abseence of telegraphic communication between Carrickmacross and Slier-cock, in County Cavan, a distance of six miles; and whether, considering that Shercock is a good business town, having its regular fairs and markets, and is also the residence of the County Coroner, he will inquire as to the desirability of establishing a telegraphic office there in the interests of the public?


No recent complaints have reached the Postmaster General. The hon. Member was informed in 1893 that the telegraphs could not be extended to Shercock except under a guarantee. The Postmaster General will make inquiry to see whether circumstances have changed, and will communicate with the hon. Member.
