HC Deb 03 August 1882 vol 273 c586

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, What was the amount of public money entrusted to Sub-Inspector H. D. O'Callaghan during the period he was stationed at Drogheda; in what it was disposed of by him; if any receipts or vouchers are forthcoming relative to its distribution; and, if so, whether he has any objections to a copy of same being laid upon the Table?


While Sub-Inspector O'Callaghan was stationed in Drogheda, £6,730 of public money was remitted to him for the purpose of defraying the pay and allowances of the men in his district, and other departmental expenditure. He has duly accounted for all the public money entrusted to him, and all the receipts have passed into the Exchequer and Audit Department, except those for the month of May last, which are still in the Constabulary Department.
