HC Deb 25 May 1865 vol 179 c788

said, he would beg to ask the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Whether, in the distribution of the Constabulary Force in the several counties and towns in Ireland contemplated in the Constabulary Force (Ireland) Act Amendment, Bill he intends to withdraw the extra Police from the county of Tipperary, who have no duties to perform, and are paid out of the local rates.


said, in reply, that the extra force of police causing a large additional burden on the county had been sent into Tipperary on the requisition of the magistrates, and it was only on a requisition from the magistrates that they could be withdrawn. If the hon. Gentleman could induce the magistrates to petition the Government for their withdrawal they would only be too happy to acquiesce in their request.
