HC Deb 27 August 1895 vol 36 c914

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if steps will be taken to reduce the police establishment at Mill Street, County Cork, in view of the very peaceful condition of that part of the county?


It is perfectly true that Mill Street district is, at present, in a generally peaceable condition. The number of police now stationed in the district is 16, which is much below the former strength. The area comprised in the district patrolled by these men is unusually large for a police district, and contains upwards of 50 townlands. The Constabulary authorities are of opinion that the strength of the force in the district cannot at present be reduced.
