§ SIR J. LENG (Dundee)
I beg to ask the Postmaster General if he will state what number of lighthouses on the coasts of the United Kingdom now have electric communication, and to what further number it is proposed to extend such communication?
§ THE POSTMASTER GENERAL (Mr. A. MORLEY, Nottingham, E.)
The number of lighthouses on the coasts of the United Kingdom which have been provided with electrical communication is 22. This number includes Lundy 89 Island, Fair Isle, and the Gunfleet Pile Lighthouse. The Royal Commission on Electrical Communication with Lighthouses, &c, have recommended that communication be also extended to Caldy Island, the Tuskar and the Fastnet. As to any further extension, they have not yet reported so far as I am aware.
