§ MR. MOONEY
I beg to ask Mr. Attorney-General for Ireland whether he is aware that tampering with the requisition forms has taken place in other districts in South Dublin as well as in the Rathmines polling district; and, if so, what action he proposes to take to discover the guilty persons.
§ THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. ATKINSON,) Londonderry, N.
The matter is in the hands of the police. Inquiries have been made by them in the different polling districts of South Dublin. With the exception of some cases in Kingstown, no tampering with these forms has been discovered outside the Rathmines polling district. The police are pursuing their inquiries. They have experienced great difficulty in obtaining information. Any persons who can be made amenable will, if the evidence justifies it, be proceeded against.
