HC Deb 16 September 1887 vol 321 c558
THE O'GORMAN MAHON(for Mr. Cox) (Clare, E.)

asked the Postmaster General, Whether it is true that the accounts of the Killaloe Post Office have been falsified and monies embezzled; whether the Postmistress has been dismissed in consequence; and, whether there is any foundation for the rumour that it is intended to appoint a near relative of the dismissed official to the vacant position?

SIR HERBERT MAXWELL (A LORD of the TREASURY)(who replied) said (Wigton)

The Postmistress of Killaloe Post Office has been arrested on a charge of larceny and embezzlement. The matter is now the subject of a magisterial investigation. The question of dismissal would not come before the Postmaster General until the magisterial investigation had been completed. No vacancy had yet arisen in the office of sub-Postmistress.
