§ MR. REYNOLDS (Tyrone, E.)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If the Inspector General of Royal Irish Constabulary has dismissed Constable Gahan, stationed at Cookstown, County Tyrone; and, if so, on what grounds; and, whether, during Constable Gahan's seven years' service, he has been punished for any offence or any charge, even of the most trivial description, preferred against him?
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR) (Manchester, E.)
This man was discharged on the ground that his retention in the force would no longer be of advantage to the Public Service. According to the records of the Department, he had no unfavourable marks against his name.
