MR. P. J. POWER
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland what number of extra police are now stationed in the County Water-ford, and at what annual cost to the ratepayers; and what were the number of cases returned for trial at the last Quarter Sessions and County Assizes?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
The extra police force now attached to the County Water-ford is 30 men. The cost is about £800 per annum. At the last Quarter Sessions there were three cases for trial, and at the last Assizes five cases.
§ MR. SEXTON
Is it intended to continue the extra police force in those parts of Ireland which the Government think now ought not to be proclaimed?
