HC Deb 04 May 1914 vol 62 cc17-8
18. Mr. F. HALL (Dulwich)

asked the Postmaster-General if any inquiry has been made as regards the allegation that the Protestant sub-postmaster of Glen-fame, county Leitrim, resigned that appointment in consequence of his employer having raised his salary to induce hint to do so; if so, will he state the result of such inquiry; if he was aware, before making a fresh appointment, that the local branches of the Ancient Order of Hibernians and of the United Irish League had passed resolutions of protest against the original appointment; and if he will state the name of the present holder of the office and his previous occupation?

Captain NORTON

I am having further inquiry made, and will communicate the result to the hon. Member.


Is the hon. Gentleman aware that the hon. Member for North Leitrim intimated that he was responsible or that the credit was due to him for a Catholic having been appointed?

Captain NORTON

I have told the hon. Member already that I am making a further inquiry, and I will communicate with him.


I beg to deny the hon. Member's statement. Is the hon. Member aware that his question is one of" the products of the imagination of Mr. Rosenbaum?
