§ MR. McCARTAN
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he will consider the desirability of establishing a telegraph office at Hilltown, county Down; and whether he is aware that Hilltown is situated on the main road between Newry and Castle wellen, at a distance of about 11 miles from either town, that it is a resting place for tourists at foot of the Mourne Mountains, and that fairs are regularly held there?
§ MR. HANBURY
The question of extending the telegraphs to Hilltown was carefully considered in 1894, and it was then found that a guarantee would be necessary, but the Postmaster General will be happy to have further inquiry made, and he will communicate the result to the hon. Member.
