§ Mr. ROBERT HARCOURT
asked the Postmaster-General, whether his attention had been called to breakdowns in the telegraphic news service to Dundee on 17th January and following nights, whereby it was alleged that great business inconvenience was caused; and if steps are being taken to prevent a recurrence of the difficulty?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
My attention has been drawn to this matter. The only way of lessening the dislocation of telegraph communication by storm is to put telegraph lines underground, and on that point I may perhaps be allowed to refer to my answer to the hon. Member for Dundee on the 1st instant.
