MR. F. A. O'KEEFFE, (Limerick)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, if, to consult the convenience of the citizens of Limerick, he will, in accordance with a numerously signed memorial, direct that a telegraph station be opened at the William Street Post Office in Limerick?
§ MR. HANBURY
No recent memorial for the opening of a telegraph office at the William Street Post Office in Limerick has been received by the Postmaster General. The question has, however, from time to time received very careful consideration, and the circumstances do not appear to have changed since the answer given to a question of the hon. Member in the last Parliament on the 5th September, 1893, when he was informed that, as there were already two telegraph offices within a short distance of the William Street Post Office, the application could not be favourably entertained.
