HC Deb 16 March 1885 vol 295 c1226

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If the privilege of keeping a private horse, or otherwise, which was granted some years ago to the resident magistracy, will now be extended to the officers of the Royal Irish Constabulary?


I do not quite understand the Question of the hon. Gentleman. The officers of the Royal Irish Constabulary are, and have been for many years, required to keep a private horse, for which they draw forage allowance.
