§ MR. WILLIAM ABRAHAM (Cork County, N. E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that prior to the passage of the Local Government (Ireland) Act, 1898, the constabulary were accustomed to give to all parties interested a full report of the result of their investigations into alleged malicious injuries, and can he explain why this practice has been discontinued; and will instructions be issued to the constabulary to furnish the result of their inquiries into malicious injury claims to interested applicants and the county and district councils concerned.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
It has never been the practice of the constabulary to supply parties interested with reports of 448 the result of their investigations in alleged malicious injury cases.
§ MR. CULLINAN
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state when it is contemplated to introduce the Local Government Amendment Act, to remedy, amongst other matters, the grievances complained of in malicious injury claims.
