HC Deb 24 February 1887 vol 311 c465
MR. HOOPER (Cork, S.E.)

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether the Resolution of the County Cork Grand Jury urging the removal of the extra police stationed in the county, as their presence involved a useless expenditure, was passed in the month of July last year; and, whether the publication of the Plan of Campaign did not take place till late in the following October; and, if so, what steps were taken in that interval of three months to give effect to the wish of the County Cork Grand Jury, as expressed in their Resolution?


The subject of the reduction of extra police is one which is constantly kept in view, but it has not at any time since July last been deemed safe by the Authorities to reduce the force in the county of Cork.
