§ MR. O'SULLIVAN
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether the district of Ardagh, in the county of Limerick, is quite free from crime or outrage; and, if so, why extra police were sent there; and, to what account has the cost of those police been charged?
§ MR. TREVELYAN
The district named is free from actual outrage; but it has been considered necessary to strengthen the police-station by two constables for special patrolling for the protection of a gentleman whose life is believed to be in danger. The extra men are a part of the county force and are chargeable as such, and not to the district of Ardagh.
