HC Deb 23 February 1893 vol 9 cc177-8

I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether a Post Office Superintendent has been in charge of Carrickfergus Post Office since the late postmistress left in the autumn of last year; would he state what is the superintendent's salary per week, and will he have to be continued there till the new postmistress, Miss O'Gorman, has been instructed in her work; and whether this expenditure would have been necessary had Miss Moore been maintained in her appointment?


The Carrickfergus Post Office has, since the 1st October last, when the vacancy occurred, been under the control of a provincial clerk in charge, as usual in such cases, and that officer has been receiving his ordinary salary of 46s. a week during that period. The hon. and gallant Member is mistaken, as I have already informed him, in thinking that Miss Moore was appointed.
