HC Deb 07 March 1899 vol 68 c20
MR. M'CARTAN (Down, S.)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster-General, if he will state whether the guarantee required for the establishment of a telegraph office at Hill town, county Down, was given, and the date on which same was signed by the guarantor; also when the connecting wire with Hilltown was commenced to be laid; what is the cause of the delay in opening the telegraph office there; and whether he can state about what date will the office be open for the dispatch and receipt of telegrams, and from what date will the guarantee commence to run?


The office will be opened to-morrow, from which date the guarantee will run.
