§ MR. SLOAN
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he can state how many times members of the Royal Irish Constabulary in C District, Belfast, were obliged to call in doctors other than those appointed for the purpose; had they to bear the expense of the treatment received; and, if so, will he direct inquiry to be made into the matter.
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. WALTER LONG,) Bristol, S.
During the past three years, twenty-seven members of the force in this district called in, at their own expense, 133 doctors other than the police medical attendant. The Inspector-General's attention has already been directed to this matter, and he is inquiring into it.
