HC Deb 13 May 1914 vol 62 c1110
76. Sir G. BARING

asked the Post master-General whether a high-speed wire less telegraphy demonstration overland, between the North of England and Scot land was given recently; and what was the result of the demonstration?


A successful demonstration of wireless telegraphy at 100 words a minute was recently given by the Marconi Company between Chelmsford and Letterfrack (Galway); and it is proposed to adopt this method of working between a station which I am about to establish near Stone-haven and an existing Post Office station near Newcastle-on-Tyne, as a stand-by in case of the interruption of the overhead lines.
