HC Deb 17 August 1916 vol 85 cc2092-3W

asked if there is a rule in the postal service in Ireland against teachers in national schools holding the position of postmaster or postmistress?


As persons holding the appointment of postmaster or postmistress are required to give their whole time to their official duties, any other occupation is prohibited. If, however, the hon. Member has in mind the position of sub-postmaster or sub-postmistress, I may say that employment in the capacity of school teacher does not preclude, so far as the Post Office is concerned, appointment as sub-postmaster or sub-postmistress.
