HC Deb 05 April 1887 vol 313 cc497-8
MR. W. A. MACDONALD (Queen's Co., Ossory)

asked the Postmaster General, Whether the office of Postmaster at Borris-in-Ossory, Queen's County, is, or is likely to become, vacant; whether the situation is sought by a man named Tynan, who is more than 70 years of ago, and would not be able to discharge the duties himself; whether it is true that a son of the said Tynan was sentenced in the Court at Green Street, Dublin, to nine months' imprisonment for stealing money from his master's till while in his employment as shop assistant; and, whether, under these circumstances, he will consider whether the post could be given to some more suitable candidate?

THE POSTMASTER GENERAL (Mr. RAIKES) (Cambridge University)

The Post Office at 13orris-in-Ossory, is vacant, and will shortly lie reported to the Treasury with whom the nomination will rest; I will, however, take care that a suitable person is appointed. No application from a man named Tynan has reached the Post Office.
