§ MR. JAMES O'KELLY (Roscommon, N.)
I beg to ask the Postmaster-General, whether it is intended to establish 1323 a telegraph office at Keadue, county Roscommon, the necessary guarantee having been given by the Boyle No. 1 district council; whether care will be taken that other than licensed premises will be secured for the purpose; and whether any applications have already been received.
§ MR. SYDNEY BUXTON
The Boyle No. 1 district council intimated on the 21st ultimo that they are prepared to give the guarantee required in connection with the provision of telegraph facilities at Keadue, and a draft agreement for giving effect to the arrangement was sent to the board on the 27th ultimo. As the sub-postmistress, who has held the office since 1880, is able and willing to undertake the new business, and as it is understood that she is prepared to provide the necessary accommodation, there is not likely to be a vacancy; but one application for appointment has been received.
