HC Deb 01 March 1900 vol 79 c1447

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether a trunk telephone between Limerick, Ennis, and West Clare can be established for the convenience of the inhabitants of those districts.


The National Telephone Company have a small exchange at Ennis, and the Postmaster General is not prepared to provide a trunk circuit without guarantee. The small amount of business which might be expected would not justify him in doing so under other conditions. There is no telephone exchange at any other place in West Clare.
