§ MR. JOHN ROCHE (Galway, E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, whether he will state the cost of the number of police at present stationed in the parish of Woodford in excess of the number there in 1885, and the present rental of the Clanricarde estate in the parish?
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
The cost of the police now stationed in the area mentioned in excess of the number there in 1885 is approximately £1,600 per annum. As stated by me in answer to the hon. Member's previous Question of Tuesday last, no expense either to the district or county is entailed by the employment of the police at present stationed there, the extra force having been entirely withdrawn from the county on the 1st instant. I have no knowledge of the rental of the estate of Lord Clanricarde in the parish of Woodford.
