HC Deb 01 April 1903 vol 120 cc782-3
MR. M'GOVERN (Cavan, W.)

To ask the Postmaster-General whether his attention has been directed to the inconvenience caused to the people of Gowna and that district in the county of Cavan owing to the want of telegraphic communication; and whether, seeing that Arvagh is the nearest telegraph office, six miles from Gowna, will he consider the advisability of establishing telephonic communication with Arvagh.

(Answered by Mr. Austen Chamberlain.) The question of an extension of the telegraph to Gowna is under inquiry, and I will communicate with the hon. Member on the subject.
