HC Deb 01 June 1874 vol 219 cc751-2

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Whether it is true the Constabulary in Ireland have received orders from their officers forbidding them to carry out the provisions afforded by the Licensing Act, 1872, against adulteration of liquor; and, if such be the case, to ask the reason for such order?


, in reply, said, he was informed by the Inspector General of Irish Constabulary that he had issued no orders of the kind referred to, and he was not aware that any such orders had been issued. He had communicated with the County Inspectors on the subject, but had not yet received their Report.
