§ MR. J. P. FARRELL
I beg to ask the Postmaster-General whether any progress is being made with the extension of the telegraph line to Dring, county Longford; and is it intended to continue the same to Aghnacliffe.
§ MR. SYDNEY BUXTON
Telegraph business was commenced at Dring on the 27th ultimo. I am quite willing—as was my predecessor—to extend the line to Aghnacliffe if the necessary guarantee be given.
