HC Deb 12 April 1905 vol 144 c1384
MR. T. HARRINGTON (Dublin Harbour)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if the order issued in December, 1902, to the members of the Dublin Metropolitan Police Force and the Royal Irish Constabulary making it part of their duty, when they observe a person under the influence of drink entering licensed premises, to warn the licensee or his assistants is still in force; and, if so, whether it is acted upon in Dublin; and whether, in the interests of sobriety as well as the protection of the licensed trade, he will cause the attention of the members of both forces to be again specially drawn to the terms of the order.

(Answered by Mr. Atkinson.) The Answer to the first two inquiries is in the affirmative. The order has been issued in printed form to both forces, and is fully known to the police. There does not appear to be any sufficient reason why special attention should be again directed to it.
