HC Deb 12 March 1888 vol 323 cc857-8
MR. CLANCY (Dublin Co., N.)

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant for Ireland, Whether an extra police force of two men has recently been stationed in each of three districts of the County of Dublin—namely, Rolestown, Ballyboghill, and Swords; if so, why has this addition been made to the already heavy burden of taxation borne by the people of those districts; and, whether in those districts of North Dublin there has been for years a single outrage, or attempted outrage, of any kind whatever?


(who replied) said, the Inspector General reported that it was the case that the police force in the three places named had been recently increased by two men each; but it was not the case that any additional burden had been thrown on the people thereby. As regarded the last paragraph of the Question, he was informed that during the last seven years there had been six outrages in these districts.
