§ MR. DELANY (Queen's County, Ossory)
To ask the Postmaster-General if he has received papers in connection with a charge of falsification of time made by an overseer against an assistant superintendent over three months ago in Dublin; is he aware that a charge of falsification of records was made against this same surperintendent some four or five years ago; and will he inquire into the matter.
(Answered by Mr. Sydney Buxton.) I have received the papers referred to, and have taken notice of the matter. The officer concerned had not, so far as I am aware, been previously reported for falsifying the records of his own attendance; but he was, some years ago, reported for furnishing incorrect records of the conduct of a subordinate officer. For this grave offence he was severely punished.
