§ MR. J. ROCHE (Galway, E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, if he can state the number and cost of extra police in the Woodford district in connection with the Clanricarde estate, also the number and valuation of the evicted farms now unoccupied in said district?
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
The number of extra police employed in the Woodford Constabulary District in connection with the Clanricarde estate is 14, and their annual cost is, approximately, £965, one-half of which is charged to the county at large. There are 32 evicted farms at present unlet on the Clanricarde estate in the same district, and of these nine are used or worked by the landlord. The total valuation of these 32 farms is £293 6s., and of the nine farms used by the landlord £114 12s.
