MR. PATRICK O'BRIEN
On behalf of the hon. Member for South Sligo, I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Inland whether, in view of the fact that extra clerks have been employed during the past eighteen months in the office of the County In- 1290 spector, Royal Irish Constabulary, at Sligo, he will state whether this extra staff, which includes a detective sergeant, is still continued; and, if so, will he state the nature of their duties and the amount payable by the ratepayers for their maintenance.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
One additional constable clerk has been employed. His services are still required. The extra expense involved is borne by the Constabulary Vote.
