HC Deb 03 June 1897 vol 50 c167

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he is aware that there is great need for a telegraph office at Kilmaganny, county Kilkenny, which has a population of about 400, several important business establishments, Petty Sessions Court, Catholic and Protestant churches, dispensary, and constabulary barracks, and is situate in an important district with no telegraph office nearer than four miles distant; and whether he will take steps to establish a telegraph office at Kilmaganny?


The question of extending the telegraphs to Kilmaganny has been carefully inquired into, but the Postmaster General regrets that he is not in a position to establish a telegraph office there unless a guarantee be furnished. The Postmaster General will communicate with the hon. Member on the subject.
