§ CAPTAIN DONELAN
On behalf of the hon. Member for South Galway (Mr. SHEEHY), I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland (1) on what grounds was Sergeant O'Dowd compelled to retire from the police force on a reduced pension before his time; and (2) will he state by whose authority Inspector Fleming is drawing an allowance of £50 per annum as Divisional County Inspector one year longer than the maximum period of three years?
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
No pensioner named Sergeant O'Dowd is on the lists of pensioners from the Royal Irish Constabulary or Dublin Metropolitan Police. There is no time limit, as suggested, to the payment of the annual allowance referred to in the second paragraph.
