HC Deb 23 August 1894 vol 29 cc384-5

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that since the County Inspector of Constabulary in Cavan resumed duty, after an absence of nearly 12 months, due to illness, frequent complaints have been made as to his treatment of the men on inspections, and as to the partisan organisation of the Force; and when this officer's turn of office will expire?


The Inspector General informs me that no complaints have reached him as regards the treatment of the police in the County Cavan since the resumption of duty by the County Inspector after an absence, on sick leave, of six months. Nor has any such complaint been made to the County Inspector. He has not attained the age at which compulsory retirement can be effected, and will not do so, I am informed, for some years to come.
