HC Deb 01 March 1897 vol 46 c1347

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury as representing the Postmaster General, whether the Postmaster General is aware that Buckie is a most important fishing centre; that, including the neighbouring villages, it has a population of about 10,000, mostly employed in the fishing industry; and that it has constant business communications with Fraserburgh and Peterhead; and whether he can make arrangements to connect Buckie with the Trunk Telephone Line?


The Postmaster General is aware of the importance of Buckie as a fishing centre. He is giving his attentive consideration to the question whether that place can be connected with the Trunk Telephone system, and it will afford him pleasure if he finds it possible to meet the wishes of the inhabitants.
