§ 29. Mr. O'DOWD
asked the Postmaster-General whether he can state when telegraphic and telephonic communication as between Great Britain and provincial towns and villages in Ireland will be re-established?
§ The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Pease)
Telegraphic communication between Great Britain and the provincial towns and villages in Ireland has been generally re-established and is now available for public use, subject only in a few cases to some delay where direct communications have not been restored and to such restrictions as the local military authorities may find it necessary to impose. Telephonic communication between Great Britain and Ireland is also open, but at the moment one of the lines is restricted to official use.
