HC Deb 04 April 1905 vol 144 c317
MR. NANNETTI (Dublin, College Green)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland what was the full amount of fines inflicted on cab and car owners and drivers of hackney cars plying for hire in the city of Dublin, for the year ending February 28th, 1905; whether these fines are appropriated by the police in addition to the rate of 8d. in the £; by what authority the Commissioner pays for policemen travelling on tramcars, and on what occasions they are supposed to do so; whether such policemen are stationed in or on the trams for the purpose of catching car drivers who are over the number allowed on the hazards; and whether the police exhibit any pass or ticket when travelling on such trams.


The amount was £151 8s. 6d. Fines so imposed are payable to the police account, as appropriations in aid of the Vote, under the authority of statute. The police travel on tramway cars, in accordance with the service regulations, when their duty requires them to do so, and they occasionally use such cars for the detection of offences. The fare is paid in the usual manner.
