HC Deb 10 March 1881 vol 259 c730

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If he can inform the House whether there is any regulation in force, or custom existing, in the Royal Irish Constabulary, that sub-inspectors should not be permanently stationed in the same district nor continued in the same station beyond a certain number of years; and, if so, will he have any objection to place the rule or regulation upon the Table of the House?


, in reply, said, he was informed by the Inspector General of Constabulary that there was no regulation of the sort. Sub-inspectors were sometimes transferred from one place to another, according as it was considered expedient. He would rather the hon. Member would not ask for the Return, as its production would give much trouble.
