HC Deb 11 March 1892 vol 2 c637
MR. CONDON (Tipperary, E.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to the proceedings at the sitting of the Grand Jury, South Tipperary Assizes, on the 3rd instant, at which a sum of £250 compensation was awarded to Constable Fennell for injuries received while on duty; whether his attention has been called to the statement of a grand juror present, named Mr. Lawe, to the fact that there are still men in the Force who got compensation for injuries received; and whether there are men now serving in the Irish Constabulary Force who have received heavy compensation from Grand Juries; and, if so, can he state how many of them; what are their names; and what are the amounts they have received?


I am informed that the constable mentioned in the question has been awarded compensation by the Grand Jury to the extent mentioned. The Constabulary Authorities have no record at head-quarters of cases in which such compensation has been awarded, but they believe that there are other men now serving in the Force who have received it.
