HC Deb 08 July 1889 vol 337 cc1688-9

I beg to ask the Postmaster General how it happened that a telegram to Mr. Lane, M.P., from John Moloney, one of the bail sureties, was delayed in the Tipperary Post Office for five hours on Wednesday last?


In reply to the hon. Member, I have to say that I have received by telegraph a report to the effect that the message was accidentally mislaid, and not discovered until an examination was made in the afternoon of all the messages then in the office. There seems to have been inexcusable carelessness, of which I will not fail to take suitable notice.
