§ MR. M. AUSTIN (Limerick, West)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, if steps are being taken to relieve the County Limerick from the tax for extra police, as, according to resolution passed at last Presentment Sessions, such extra force is wholly unnecessary, and which is borne out by the remarks of the County Court Judge.
MR. J. MORLEY
The extra force charged to the County Limerick has been reduced by l5 men, dating from the 1st inst. A further reduction of five men has been decided on, and will shortly be carried out. The total reduction (20) is equivalent to a relief to county rates to the extent of about £650 per annum. No further reduction is practicable at present.
