§ MR. JOHN O'CONNOR
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland how many houses of evicted tenants are now occupied by the police in the town of Tipperary; what is the rent of each house so occupied, and under what conditions of tenancy are they held; and will he state what is the necessity for taking houses of this kind whilst there is room enough in the ordinary barracks and the Town Hall now occupied by the police?
§ * MR. A. J. BALFOUR
The Constabulary authorities report that the police occupy two houses from which tenants were evicted in the town of Tipperary. It is proposed to pay at the rate of £70 a year for one and at the rate of £6 a month for the other. No final decision has been as yet arrived at in regard to the conditions of the tenancy. The Constabulary authorities add that the permanent barracks and the Town Hall do not afford accommodation for the number of police now necessarily employed on duty in the town.
