§ MR. HENRY CAMPBELL (Fermanagh, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether District Inspector Dagg, of the Royal Irish Constabulary, Lisnaskea, County Fermanagh, in January of this year, being in a state of madness resulting from severe drinking, forced his way into the Ulster Bank in that town, in the absence of the manager, and at- 1135 tempted a criminal assault upon the housekeeper, who only succeeded in escaping from him after a severe struggle; that the Inspector thereupon ordered two policemen to "arrest the Bank;" and that they remained in charge of the Bank with closed doors for over two hours, and refused to allow the manager of the Bank or his servant to enter; whether any Report was received from him on this matter; and whether, if the facts are as stated, he will order the removal of this officer from the district of Lisnaskea, or what action will he take?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
The Inspector General informs me that no Report of these alleged occurrences have, up to the present time, been received by him. The Divisional Commissioner and the County Inspector of Fermanagh have been directed to proceed to Lisnaskea to investigate the charge.
