§ MR. ION HAMILTON
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether Mr. Tilson Shaen Carter did at any time apply for police protection for himself, or for any additional force of police to be located in his neighbourhood; and, if so, whether he will state the grounds upon which such application was refused?
§ MR. W. E. FORSTER
replied, that he need not say how much he sympathized with the family of Mr. Carter. Mr. Carter did not apply for personal protection, but he advised the Government to have a police station placed in the locality, and that would have been done in November, 1880, had not Mr. Carter changed his mind, and said it would not be required. In November last, however, he made fresh representations to the Government on the subject, in consequence of which a police station with 10 men was formed there.
