HC Deb 06 December 1911 vol 32 cc1403-4

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is yet in a position to make any statement as to the provision of a telephone service in the town of Longford from Mullingar or Dublin?

The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Herbert Samuel)

I am sorry to say that I am not yet able to make any definite statement as to the prospects of a telephone service being provided for Longford. I am, however, in discussion with the Treasury as to the general conditions on which telephone extensions of this kind can be undertaken and am taking steps to obtain an early decision.
