HC Deb 11 August 1904 vol 140 cc250-1
MR. J. P. FARRELL (Longford, N.)

I beg to ask the Postmaster-General whether he has decided to sanction the appointment of Mrs. Smyth to the vacant sub-post office of Moyne; and whether, having regard to the protest made against this appointment by local residents in the district, he will cancel this appointment, and give the office to one of the other applicants for this vacancy.


I decided to appoint Mrs. Smyth to the vacant sub-post office at Moyne, as from the information furnished in the first instance she appeared to be the most suitable candidate. I have since ascertained, however, that a serious impediment in Mrs. Smyth's speech would interfere with the proper discharge of her duties, and I have therefore altered my decision, and propose to appoint Mrs. Gray.
