HC Deb 14 March 1911 vol 22 c2051

asked the Postmaster-General whether it has come to his knowledge that continued friction has taken place in the working of the Cork telegraphic staff, owing to repeated complaints of mismanagement made by various staff deputations against the chief assistant superintendent; that the handling of Press messages in the office has in consequence become a subject of repeated complaint; and whether he will direct an independent inquiry to be made into the causes of the discontent and confusion prevailing in the Cork office?

The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Herbert Samuel)

I cannot agree that there has been serious friction among the staff or repeated complaints from the public, but some difficulties have arisen, and they are already the subject of inquiry?
