HC Deb 24 November 1884 vol 294 cc241-2

asked the Postmaster General, If Daniel Morrison, of Moville, now daily driving the mail car from that town to Culdaff, is the same person who in 1882 committed a robbery on one Neal Doherty, for which he was convicted before the magistrates at Moville Petty Sessions, committed to gaol for said offence, and also ordered to pay ten shillings compensation to Doherty for stealing his fish; and, if so, will he be continued in daily employment in the service of the Postmaster General, conveying important letters, money orders, and valuable parcels?


Morrison is not a servant of the Post Office, but is employed by a contractor for a mail cart, who is also his brother-in-law. I am informed that, three years ago, he was convicted of petty larceny when under the influence of drink; but, as he has otherwise borne a good character, I see no reason to call upon the contractor to discharge him.
