HC Deb 20 May 1890 vol 344 c1403
MR. SCHWANN (Manchester. N.)

I beg to ask the Attorney General for Ireland whether it is the fact that on the 21st April last, when Father Humphry stood talking with Mr. Gill, of Nenagh (in streets of New Tipperary), the policeman, who is alleged to have told them rudely to "move on" and was asked his name, gave the name of Moran though his true name is Leonard; did he refuse to state where he was stationed, and why; what are the regulations of the Force as to giving their name and address when asked; is it the fact that, on the 22nd April, a policeman followed Father Humphry, and whistled after him in an insulting manner, and refused to give his name, but on another occasion gave it as Wilson Williams, though in a prosecution in Court swore his name was William Welsh; has the duty been especially assigned to this constable, William Welsh, to walk by Father Humphry's side and keep step with him, whilst another constable walks a few feet behind keeping step with them; and what is the name of the second constable?


I must ask the hon. Gentleman to postpone this question.
