HC Deb 16 March 1903 vol 119 cc838-9
MR. POWER (Waterford, E.)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he will explain why extra police were drafted into the villages of Ballylaneen and Kilmacthomas, county Waterford, on the day Mr. Matthew Power was released from prison: and will he state whether the county will be charged with the cost incurred by drafting these extra men into these villages; and, if so, what will the cost be.

(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) A small force of ten men was detailed for duty on this occasion in anticipation of a disturbance of the public peace, which, happily, was not realised. Any expense that may have been incurred will be defrayed from the Constabulary Vote.
