§ MR. HENRY CAMPBELL (Fermanagh, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, with reference to the case of Sergeant John M'Guire, of the Royal Irish Constabulary, who was stationed in Innismurray Island, off the coast of Sligo, in March 1889, and who received a wound on the head on the 17th March, 1889, from the effects of which he died shortly afterwards, if he can state under what circumstances Sergeant M'Guire received this wound; and whether Sergeant M'Guire at the time of his death left any money invested, or otherwise, in the hands of his superiors; and, if so, will it be handed over to his parents
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOB IRELAND (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR,) Manchester, E.
The Constabulary authorities report that the sergeant's death was due to erysipelas, resulting from an accidental fall while engaged in separating two men who were quarrelling. The sergeant did not leave any money, invested or otherwise, in the hands of his superiors. The balance of his pay to the date of his decease was handed over to his mother.
