§ MR. WILLIAM REDMOND (Clare, E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether anything can be done to relieve the Clare County Council from the payment of the sum of £441 for the cost of extra police up to March last, in view of the peaceable state of the county as evidenced by the charge of the Lord Chief Justice at the late Assizes.
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. WYNDHAM, Dover)
The additional police were withdrawn from Clare on the 1st April. The charge incurred for the extra force to that date 1448 is a statutory one, which cannot be remitted.
