HC Deb 09 March 1904 vol 131 c590

I beg to ask the Postmaster-General whether, in the case of delivery of telegrams between Blacklion and Glengevlin, in county Cavan, he is aware that full porterage was charged for five miles without deduction in respect of the three miles allowed for limit; whether this is in accordance with the regulations of the Post Office; and, if so, does he intend to modify it so as to allow for the three-mile limit.

THE POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Lord STANLEY,) Lancashire, Westhoughton

The charge to which the hon. Member refers is in accordance with the Statutory Telegraph Regulations of 1898, and I do not propose to alter the regulations in that respect. I will see, however, whether it is possible to open a telegraph office at or near Glengevlin under guarantee.
