HC Deb 03 August 1905 vol 151 cc90-1
MR. SLOAN (Belfast, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the attention of the county inspector of the Royal Irish Constabulary in Sligo has been called to the fact that the Sunday Closing Act is practically ignored in that town; and whether he will communicate with the Inspector-General with the view of having the Act enforced throughout Ireland.


The police in Sligo, as elsewhere in Ireland, pay particular attention to the enforcement of the Sunday Closing Act. During the past five years the police prosecuted forty-two cases of breaches of that Act in Sligo, and convictions were had in twenty-nine cases.


What about Sunday motoring?
