HC Deb 12 July 1900 vol 85 c1325

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he is aware that inconvenience is caused in and around Cahirdaniel, county Kerry, owing to the want of telegraphic communications; and that a guarantee has been given in connection with the proposed telegraph office; and whether, in view of the fact that the fishing industry, which is of importance to that district, will be in operation during next month, immediate steps will be taken by the Post Office authorities to give the required telegraphic communications to Cahirdaniel.


The Postmaster General is sorry that any inconvenience should arise from the lack of telegraphic communication with Cahirdaniel. He has given instructions for the extension of the telegraph to be put in hand; but the engineering staff is working under considerable pressure, and he fears he cannot promise that the work shall be completed at once.
