HC Deb 19 March 1907 vol 171 cc644-5
MR. GINNELL (Westmeath, N.)

To ask the Postmaster-General if he will consider favourably the claim of Mullingar to be included among the towns in Ireland to which he proposes to give telephone facilities.

(Answered by Mr. Sydney Buxton.) I am making inquiry as to the conditions on which an extension of the Post Office trunk telephone system to Mullingar can be offered, and will inform the hon. Member of the result. I understand that an exchange was established in Mullingar by the National Telephone Company some time ago, but that it had to be closed on account of insufficient local support.
