HC Deb 17 March 1864 vol 174 c184

said, he rose to ask the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Whether he considers the Instructions issued to the Constabulary in that Country in May, 1860, relieve them from the duties of properly watching the towns of Ireland by night, which appears clearly to have been their duty under the Instructions issued in October, 1837.


replied, that he had examined the Instructions issued in May, 1860, and in October, 1837, and he could discover no difference between them. If there was any difference he would be glad, on the hon. Gentleman conferring with him, to take steps to put the two sets of Instructions in accord one with the other.
