§ MR. DILLON (Mayo, E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether, in the case of the two constables injured in Tipperary, the injuries were inflicted before 1st July, 1889, and the presentments made by the Grand Jury on the 15th July, 1889; and whether these dates were previous to the inauguration of the combination on the Smith-Barry estate?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
It appears that the two constables referred to as having obtained compensation received it in respect of injuries inflicted in March, 1889. I was, therefore, in error in the statement I made on Monday about these two men. I am informed that two other policemen, named Curran and Keating, were injured subsequent to the inauguration of the conspiracy on the Smith-Barry estate. I have inquired into the character of their injuries, but have not had time to receive a reply. Perhaps the hon. Member will ask a question later.
§ MR. DILLON
Has any policeman got compensation for injuries since the beginning of the combination on the Smith-Barry estate?
