HC Deb 22 February 1904 vol 130 c569
MR. KENDAL O'BRIEN (Tipperary, Mid.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he will state how many extra police are stationed in Cappawhite district, county Tipperary, and for what reason; whether he will say for what official use a. special transport car provided at Cappawhite is employed, and whether the head constable has authority to use it for his private business; and whether he is aware that this official recently used it to take him on a canvassing tour with reference to an expected vacancy in the clerkship of petty sessions.


The police force in this district was augmented in 1902, but the necessity for the additional men having passed away they were withdrawn some time ago. The transport car is still required for patrolling purposes. It has never been used by the head constable except when engaged on duty. The reply to the concluding inquiry is in the negative.
