§ MR. ALEXANDER BLANE (Armagh, S.)
asked the Chief Secretary to 776 the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If head constable Magee will still be retained at Armagh, notwithstanding that his relations by marriage reside in Thomas Street, Armagh; and, if the usual rule of the constabulary applies in this case?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. HOLMES) (Dublin University)
I am informed that the rule referred to in the Question is frequently relaxed when the relationship is so distant as not to interfere with the proper and impartial discharge of duty. This is the case as regards Head Constable Magee; and, therefore, it is not intended to transfer him from Armagh.
