HC Deb 04 August 1890 vol 347 cc1744-5
MR. SEXTON) (Belfast, W.

I beg to ask the Attorney General for Ireland what is the present condition of the Constabulary Force Fund, particularly as to the gross assets, the annual receipts, and the annual expenditure; by whom the account is kept, by whom it is audited, and whether any periodical statements are published or furnished to the contributors; what is the intention of the Irish Government in regard to the fund; and whether they are disposed to wind it up at the desire of the contributors.


The condition of the Constabulary Force Fund has been for some time engaging the careful attention of the Irish Government in communication with the Treasury. The question is now in an advanced stage, and we hope to be in a position at an early day to make a statement on the subject which will be satisfactory to all parties concerned.


I will repeat the question on Monday.
