HC Deb 22 May 1857 vol 145 c712

asked the Secretary to the Treasury if the Report is correct that the Revenue Police in Ireland are to be dismissed, the men to be transferred to the constabulary, and a small gratuity to be given to the officers now serving?


said, that it was not the intention of the Government to abandon the present system of employing the Revenue Police in aid of the constabulary in Ireland, which had been commenced under the Act of 1854; but as that Act expired in the present year, Parliament would be asked to renew it with certain modifications.
