HC Deb 21 July 1902 vol 111 c778

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that Head Constable Adderley, of Newtownhamilton, County Armagh, is in the habit of collecting numbers of Protestants every Sunday in the Police Barracks for religious demonstrations; and will he say whether such a practice is in accordance with the police regulations, and, if not, will he direct its discontinuance.


On Sunday, the; 13th instant a few friends spent the evening in social intercourse with the head constable and his wife on the eve of her departure for a holiday. It is to be regretted that a public question so inquisitorial and so inaccurate in its suggestion should have been founded on an occurrence of so private and unimpeachable a character.
