HC Deb 06 March 1899 vol 67 cc1347-8
MR. DONAL SULLIVAN (Westmeath, S.)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster-General, is it true that telegraphic messages are transmitted from the Streamstown, county Westmeath, Telegraph Office, but not received or delivered; and if the Postmaster-General would establish a proper service, and make provision for a very important district, parts of which are 10 miles distant from a telegraph office?


Telegrams are transmitted from Streamstown Railway Station, and are received, but not delivered outside the station premises, the railway company not having the necessary facilities. The Postmaster-General will be happy to open a telegraph office at the post office to serve the district in question, if a guarantee on the terms stated to the honourable Member on the 18th July last is forthcoming.
