I think if the Deputy refers to the Official account he will find that that quotation which certainly did appear in the Press is not strictly accurate. I have nothing to add to the information furnished yesterday regarding the acts of sabotage at Amiens Street Telegraph Office.
With regard to the Telephone Exchange at Crown Alley the details are as follows:—
Code markings of the Junction, and Trunk circuits were interchanged causing absolute confusion in the switching of calls. Military lines were similarly interfered with.
The calling circuits for some of the Trunk and Junction lines were also put out of order so as to prevent calls being received over those lines in the Dublin Exchange.
Further the cards containing records of code markings could not be found when the Staff left, and the Staff address record were also missing.
The result cf the interference with the switchboards has been seriously to interfere with the restoration of even restricted Telephone Service.
