§ MR. FINIGAN
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether he is aware that the constabulary of the County Down have been ordered for a fortnight's drill; that such is of a purely military character; at whose cost is the travel and transport from one part of the county to another; and, whether the Government intend to put a stop to the military organization of the Irish Constabulary?
§ MR. T. P. O'CONNOR
Before the right hon. Gentleman answers the Question, I would like to ask him if the Constabulary are not reviewed in the Fifteen Acres in Phoenix Park far oftener than the military—namely, once a week?
§ MR. W. E. FORSTER
I really cannot answer either of these Questions. As regards the last, I have no doubt it is the case; but if the hon. Member will put his Question on the Paper, so as to give me an opportunity of making inquiries, I shall be able to answer him more precisely. As to the first Question, I heard it for the first time by the Notice of the hon. Member, and have had no Report on the subject.
