§ MR. DONAL SULLIVAN (Westmeath, S.)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, why the public telegraph business at Streamstown, county Westmeath, has been discontinued; and whether he can promise to have the office there reopened?
§ MR. HANBURY
Public telegraph business at Streamstown has not been discontinued; telegrams are still forwarded from the telegraph office at the station, but the delivery of telegrams outside the station has been discontinued at the railway company's request, the company apparently finding some difficulty in providing for that service. The Postmaster General is, however, in communication with the company on the subject.
