HC Deb 04 August 1903 vol 126 c1449

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether, in view of the fact that only two policemen were on duty at the corner of Union Street and Donegal Street on 13th July, when a procession was attacked with the result shat some persons were injured, he will cause inquiry to be made into the circumstances.


As a matter of fact four policemen were stationed at this point on the occasion referred to, and sixty others were on duty within a radius of 200 yards. The Commissioner of Belfast, in whom the Government has the fullest confidence, was responsible for the allocation of the police, and it is not proposed to make further inquiry into the matter
