HC Deb 11 July 1904 vol 137 c1209

I beg to ask MR. Attorney-General for Ireland if his attention has been called to complaints from the Kingstown and Dalkey polling districts of South Dublin as to the tampering with the voters' requisition forms by the agents of a certain organisation; and whether, if a list of these agents, together with a list of such forms altered by them without authority, is placed before him, he will direct a prosecution to take place; and whether he proposes to take any, and, if so, what action to secure that these inaccuracies should be corrected, and the persons entitled, and these only, placed on the supplemental list.


My attention has been called to the matter. The town clerks of Kingstown and Dalkey state that no complaints have been made to them on the subject, and the latter gentleman further states that he is certain that no forms were tampered with in his district. I shall be thankful, however, to the hon. Member for any information he may be good enough to furnish me with, calculated to aid the police in the inquiries they are now making on the subject.


I will supply the right hon. Gentleman with information.
