§ MR. T. M. HEALY (Louth, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether complaints have reached the Inspector General of the Royal Irish Constabulary from the force in County Monaghan as to language used during drill by the County Inspector, and that for trivial mistakes constables have been ordered on transfer at their own expense; and will inquiry be made as to discontent amongst the rank and file in the county at their treatment?
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. J. MORLEY,) Newcastle-upon-Tyne
No complaints of the nature referred to have reached me. A number of men have during the last 12 mouths been transferred at their own expense not for trivial mistakes, but for serious breaches of discipline. I am not aware that any discontent exists among the police in this county.
