HC Deb 09 April 1913 vol 51 c1184
86. Mr. DELANY

asked the Postmaster-General if he can say what is the cause of the delay in connecting Durrow, Queen's County, with the telephone system; whether he is aware that the necessary guarantees are forthcoming, that the request has been made more than four years ago, and that the trunk line at Attanagh railway station is only two miles distant; and whether he can now say when the connection will be carried out?


I am sorry to say that, notwithstanding the protracted efforts which have been made, the necessary amount of support to justify the establishment of a telephone exchange at Durrow has not yet been obtained. I will cause further inquiry to be made, and will then write to the hon. Member.

87. Mr. J. P. FARRELL

asked the Postmaster-General if he will say when he hopes to begin the work of installing the trunk telephone in Longford as already promised?


The work of erecting the trunk line to Longford will be begun at the end of this month.
