HC Deb 18 May 1904 vol 135 cc164-5
MR. DELANY (Queen's County, Ossory)

To ask the Postmaster-General whether he can explain the delay which has taken place in the completion of the telegraph connection between Mountrath, Queen's County, and Coolrain, in view of the fact that the required guarantee was given and the agreement completed with the Post Office authorities last June.

(Answered by Lord Stanley.) The telegraph extension to Coolrain could not be carried out in last financial year for lack of funds. It is now in hand and will, I hope, be very soon completed.
