§ MR. VINCENT KENNEDY (Cavan, W.)
To ask the Postmaster-General if an application for transfer has been received from Thomas Connolly, postman, Castle Street, Antrim; how long has the applicant been in his present appointment; when did he first apply for a transfer; and will he be considered in connection with the first vacancy.
(Answered by Mr. Sydney Buxton.) An application for transfer, dated the 51 21st of November, 1905, has been received from Thomas Connolly, who was appointed to his present and first situation as postman on the 13th of July, 1903. His application will be considered in connection with any vacancies which may occur at the towns to which he desires transfer. But he has no claim to a transfer, and, owing to the claims of local candidates at the offices referred to and of other established applicants for transfer, there is, I regret to say, little or no prospect of his request being complied with at present.
