HC Deb 07 August 1890 vol 348 cc102-3
DR. FITZGERALD (Longford, S.)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General if it is true that a certain number of Provincial Clerks-in-charge-ships were allowed to the Dublin Post Office by the late Mr. Fawcett; if these appointments have invariably been filled from the sorting office; what reason is assigned for not giving a proportionate share of these appointments to the telegraph branch; why such vacancies as Inspecting Telegraphists have not been offered to the Dublin Telegraph Office clerks; and if, considering the stagnation of promotion in the Dublin Telegraph Office, he will take steps to insure that such sources of promotion will in future be offered to officers in this branch of the Service?


No record can be found of Mr. Fawcett having assigned any appointments as Provincial Clerks-in-Charge to the Dublin Post Office; and as regards the other matter referred to by the hon. Member, time has not admitted of inquiry being made.
