§ MR. CHARLES CRAIG
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland how many extra police have been drafted into the districts of Loughrea and Athenry; where have they been brought from: and will he consider the advisability of charging the districts named, instead of the county at large, with their cost.
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. WALTER LONG,) Bristol, S.
Between March 30th and April 8th, a force of sixty-five extra police was stationed in Loughrea,Athenry, and other districts in the East Riding of Galway. The extra force was reduced by ten men on the latter date. The police have been drawn from a number of counties, and the question of the area of charge is at present under consideration.
