HC Deb 15 July 1901 vol 97 c441
MR. O'DOWD (Sligo, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether five iron police huts are being erected in Sligo county; and, if so, will he name the localities where it is proposed to erect these huts, and those for whom protection is intended.


One such hut is being erected on the Leitrim farm, near Achonry, and three other huts will be put up in the same district. Protection will be given from these stations to any individual who may be threatened or molested in the pursuit of his legitimate occupation.


Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that there is a police station there already?


Yes, but it is necessary to add to the existing accommodation.
