HL Deb 23 February 1885 vol 294 c1019

asked Her Majesty's Government, Why the office of Secretary to the General Post Office, Dublin, which has been vacant for many months, has not been filled up; whether it is intended to fill it up; and, if so, when?


in reply, said, that the office referred to by the noble Earl was not at present actually vacant; but he believed there had been some temporary interruption in the performance of its duties owing to certain legal proceedings which had taken place, to which he need not more particularly refer. Pending an appeal, which was shortly expected to be heard, the Postmaster General was unable to make any final arrangements.
