§ DR. AMBROSE (Mayo, W.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that a sum of £920 has been levied on the districts of Castlebar and Wexford for extra police; and whether, considering the condition of those districts and the difficulty experienced by the inhabitants in meeting their liabilities, he will see that this sum is refunded.
(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) There is no power to refund any portion of the charge levied pursuant to statutory authority in respect of the cost of employment of extra forces of police.
