HC Deb 23 March 1900 vol 81 c196
MR. DALY (Monaghan, S.)

I beg to ask Mr. Attorney General for Ireland whether he is aware that recently a number of Trinity College students were before the police courts in Dublin for assaulting the police and other offences, and that Mr. Tobias, who usually prosecutes for the police, stated that he had only received word of the cases since he came into court; and whether he can state who was responsible for not instructing Mr. Tobias in time, or if Mr. Tobias got his full fee in these cases.


The students referred to were brought to the police court within an hour after their arrest. The police instruct Mr. Tobias, and he received the only notice which, under the circumstances, was practicable. He is paid by salary, and not by fees.
