HC Deb 18 February 1904 vol 130 cc255-6
MR. SLOAN (Belfast, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he will explain under what circumstances the present Commissioner of the Dublin Metropolitan Police was permitted to give evidence before the recent University Commission in support of a Roman Catholic University for Ireland, and if such action is in accordance with the police regulations.


Sir John Ross, of Bladensburg, is a member of the Senate of the Royal University of Ireland, and it was in this capacity he gave evidence before the Royal Commission. He was not prohibited by the police regulations from appearing as a witness before the Royal Commission.
