§ MR. JOYCE (Limerick)
I beg to ask the Postmaster-General whether his attention has been called to the want of telephonic communication between Limerick and the following towns, viz:—Ennis, Kilrush, Tipperary, Nenagh, Kilkee, Clonmel, and Mallow; and whether, in view of the commercial advantages it would confer on those districts, he will have such a system established.
I have received a letter from the Limerick Chamber of Commerce asking that telephonic communication may be established between Limerick and the other places mentioned by the hon. Member. Arrangements have already been made for an extension of the Post Office Telephone System to Mallow and Tipperary as soon as additional funds 591 have been provided by Parliament for the telephone service, and I am making inquiries as to the conditions on which similar extensions can be made to the other towns.
