§ MR. KILBRIDE
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state the number of police drafted into Newbridge, County Galway, and neighbourhood on the occasion of the recently proclaimed meeting, from what stations were the men taken, what was the cost, and from what source will it be met.
§ MR. G. W. BALFOUR
The police force assembled at Newbridge on the occasion of the recently proclaimed meeting consisted of two officers and sixty-five men. The men were drawn from various stations in the East Riding of Galway. The expense entailed by their employment on this duty amounted to about £25, which will be defrayed from the Constabulary Vote.
