HC Deb 21 June 1906 vol 159 c386

I beg to ask the Postmaster-General if he is aware that, the postmaster recently removed from Killucan was addicted to distributing proselytising tracts and leaflets; that a local cycling club was accustomed to follow him cleansing the public roads of this matter, and that his assistant and disciple is now a candidate for the vacant postmastership; and will he take care, before sanctioning a new appointment, that it shall not involve a further infliction of this character upon the people of the district.


Careful inquiry at Killucan has produced no clear evidence of the truth of the statements that the late postmaster was addicted to distributing proselytising tracts and leaflets, or that any persons were accustomed to follow him about with the object indicated. In selecting an officer for the vacant appointment I shall of course consider the fitness in all respects of the candidates who apply.
