HC Deb 28 January 1897 vol 45 c683

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether the intention of the Post Office to construct a trunk telephone line between Cork and Dublin, announced last year, has been carried out; and if not, what the cause of the delay is?


The construction of the trunk telephone line from Dublin to Cork and Limerick is in progress, and the work will be pushed on with all reasonable speed. The Postmaster General is not aware that any delay has taken place.
