§ MR. F. MANDEVILLE (Tipperary, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he has received an influentially signed memorial from the people of the parish of Cullen, county Tipperary, asking not to suppress the police station there, for the ratepayers consider its position to be the most conveniently central in their district; and if he will arrange to have the Cullen Police Station kept on, and one of the less useful police stations suppressed instead of it?
MR. J. MORLEY
The Memorial referred to has been received. Owing to 931 the recent reduction in the extra force in the county it has become necessary to arrange for the abolition of the station at Cullen, which is a small village only one and a-half miles distant from another police barrack, and sufficient protection can be afforded to Cullen and its neighbourhood from this barrack. Under present circumstances, I fear there is no sufficient reason for a further continuance of the station at Cullen.
