HC Deb 26 July 1898 vol 62 c1303

On behalf of the honourable Member for North Cork I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether his attention has been called to a memorial largely signed by the inhabitants and traders of the locality asking for the establishment of a telegraphic office in connection with the sub-post office at King Street, Cork, and in view of its proximity to the steamship offices, large mercantile establishments, and hotels, the Department will accede to the request of the memorialists?


The attention of the Postmaster General has been called to the memorial referred to by the honourable Member, but in view of the proximity of the head post office he does not think it would be desirable, or in the interests of the public, to open the King Street, Cork, sub-post office as a telegraph office.
