HC Deb 12 August 1887 vol 319 c245
MR. J. O'CONNOR (Tipperary, S.)

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether it is a Rule of the Irish Constabulary Force that no member of the Force shall apply for any Civil position while receiving the pay or discharging the duties of a constable; whether Head Constable Irvine, of Cork, has applied for, and obtained, the appointment of station master of the Cork and Muskerry Light Railway, while still performing the duties of a Head Constable of Police at Cork; and, whether he will inquire into the case; and, if an infraction of the Rule has taken place, state what action he will take in the matter?


The Inspector General of Constabulary informs me there is no such Rule as that indicated in the Question.
