§ 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?
§ MR. HANBURY
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.
