HC Deb 25 January 1897 vol 45 c407
MR. J. J. CLANCY (Dublin Co., N.)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, will he explain why the Postmaster General has refused to comply with the request of the Town Commissioners of Clontarf, County Dublin, to establish a telegraphic office at Fairview, a place within that township, although the telegraph lines run in close proximity to the proposed office; whether he is aware that in the district of Fairview there is a population of about 3,000 which is at present wholly without telegraphic facilities; and whether, if so, and since no expense need be incurred in erecting a postal telegraph office at Fairview, he will now reconsider the subject, with a view to conceding the request made by the Clontarf Board?


The question of establishing a Telegraph Office at Fairview has only recently been considered, and the circumstances did not at that time appear to be such as to justify the extension. The Postmaster General will, however, cause a further inquiry on the subject to be made.

Forward to
