HC Deb 26 July 1883 vol 282 cc532-3

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, At whose request and for what reasons a police hut was erected on an evicted farm on the property of Mr. R. H. E. White, at Incharoe, near Bantry; whether the cost of the extra police establishment will be charged upon the neighbourhood; and, whether he is aware that the County Court Judge in his late address to the Grand Jury at Bantry, declared that— From the evidence before us and from the information I have received since I came to Bantry I can state with confidence that your extensive and interesting division appears at present to be free from agrarian and other crime of a serious character?


Sir, the hut was erected for the accommodation of police who were required for the protection of caretakers. The men are a part of the county force, and will not be a charge on the locality. I am glad to learn that the County Court Judge was able to express so favourable an opinion on the state of the district generally.
