Dáil Eireann Debate
Mr. Power: Is the Minister aware that a textile factory, which is making earnest endeavours to get a foothold in markets abroad, has complained on two occasions recently to the Department that a customer in Holland tried for two days to get through to the Droichead Nua factory and was unsuccessful? This has happened ten times weekly on average. More recently still telex trouble was experienced between here and Toronto and extreme difficulty was experienced in trying to contact South Africa to which this firm has large exports. Would the Minister not agree that a company who export £1½ million worth annually and employ 200 people deserve better service than they are getting at the moment?
Mr. Desmond: asked the Minister for Posts and Telegraphs if in view of the very substantial increase in population at Ballybrack, County Dublin, he will ensure that an adequate public telephone system is installed.
Mr. G. Collins: Ballybrack, County Dublin, is regarded as adequately served by the telephone kiosk in the village which is not extensively used. The provision of additional public telephone facilities in the area is not considered warranted at present.
