HC Deb 17 February 1881 vol 258 cc1090-1

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If the Government have had any representations made to them urging the erection of an additional police barrack in the village of Rossmore (near Clonakilty, county Cork); and if, before deciding on the matter, he will make inquiries as to what is the opinion held respecting the necessity for extra police by the bulk of the inhabitants of the district?


in reply, said, that representations had been made to the Government urging them to establish such a station; but it had not yet appeared necessary to establish it. As at present advised, moreover, they had no intention whatever to establish it. The invariable practice in such cases was to obtain information of the local authorities, who were responsible for the peace of the district, and on the information so obtained the Government formed its decision.
