§ DR. AMBROSE (Mayo, W.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he can now state when the promised sworn Inquiry into the charges against the police with reference to the seizure of illicit stills in County Mayo is to take place; and what is the method to be adopted on that occasion.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
The inquiry will, I hope, be opened at Castlebar on Tuesday the 12th instant. Due notice of the inquiry will be given to the witnesses to be examined. The court will consist of Mr. Gambell, assistant inspector general, and Mr. Meldon, resident magistrate. The proceedings will be public, and it will be open to solicitors or counsel to be present to watch the interests of witnesses and to advise them.
