HC Deb 17 February 1890 vol 341 c441
MR. HAYDEN (Leitrim, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland by whose authority a police escort has been recently following Mr. John Fitzgibbon, of Castlerea, when attending at funerals, at quarter sessions, at mass, and at the meeting of the Suck Drainage Board, of which he is a member; what is there in the state of the county of Roscommon which justifies this use of members of the constabulary, who might be either dispensed with altogether or allowed to discharge the ordinary duties of constabulary?


I must ask the hon. Member to defer the question until to-morrow.
