§ MR. BLANE (Armagh, S.)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If the County Inspector of Constabulary, County Armagh, some two years ago held an investigation into certain charges preferred against Sergeant Moloney, now of Mount Norris; and, whether the County Inspector was so satisfied of the truth of the charges that he caused the transfer of Sergeant 1407 Moloney to another station; and, if so, whether the Government will consider the advisability of having him removed from Mount Norris to some other station, having regard to former charges made against him there?
§ THE PARLIAMENTARY UNDER SECRETARY (Colonel KING-HARMAN) (Kent, Isle of Thanet)
(who replied), said: It is true that in March, 1885, an investigation was held at Mount Norris into charges made against Sergeant Moloney. The charges could not, however, be substantiated; but the Sergeant was removed from that station in the interests of the Service, but not as a punishment. I am informed that Sergeant Moloney has now been sent to Mount Norris simply to take temporary charge under unavoidable circumstances.
