§ MR. P. J. O'BRIEN (Tipperary, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutennnt of Ireland whether, now that the County of Tipperary, with the exception of one Barony, has been declared exempt from the provisions of the Criminal Law and Procedure (Ireland) Act, steps will be taken to relieve the ratepayers from the burthen of the cost for extra police in the county; and will he state on what grounds the Act is still to remain in force in the Barony of Clan william?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
The question of employment of extra police is considered every year. The case of Tipperary will be carefully considered with the other cases. The Barony of Clan-william is under the summary jurisdiction clauses of the Act because of intimidation. When that danger ceases the restriction will be removed.
