§ Mr. O'SHEE
asked the Postmaster-General whether he has arranged for an extension of the telephone system to 2691W Dungarvan; and whether the same will also be extended to Lismore and Cappoquin, which are convenient?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
An extension of the telephone system to Dungarvan under guarantee has been offered if twenty subscribers can be found for the Exchange, but I understand that only fifteen are forthcoming. The extension of the Trunk line system involves a heavy expenditure, but I will consider whether this smaller number of subscribers can be accepted, and also on what conditions Lismore and Cappoquin can be served at the same time.
