HC Deb 10 February 1902 vol 102 c863
MR. O'DOWD (Sligo, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, whether he is aware that some members of the Royal Irish Constabulary, at present stationed in the district of Ballymote, Co. Sligo, are in the habit of purchasing hay and other commodities from the farmers of the locality, ostensibly for their own use, and afterwards reselling the same to persons unconnected with the force; and, whether this action of theirs has the sanction of the police authorities.


The hon. Member has been misinformed. There is no foundation whatever for the statements in this Question.
