HC Deb 02 March 1903 vol 118 c1102
MR. DELANY (Queen's County, Ossory)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the police at Maryborough requisitioned a horse and ear, the property of a resident of Ballincanty Killurin, King's County, for the conveyance to the lunatic asylum, Maryborough, of an escaped patient from that institution; and will he explain upon what grounds the constabulary authorities have refused to pay the claim of the car owner.

(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) The police did not refuse to pay this claim. They forwarded it to the asylum authorities, by whom it was paid.
