HC Deb 04 July 1905 vol 148 c991

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to the fact that the Judges at the Assizes held in Limerick for some years past have congratulated the Grand Jury on the peaceable condition of the city; has the County Court Judge done likewise; how many pairs of white gloves have been presented to the Judges of both Courts in Limerick for the past five years; and whether he has any reports of the police authorities on the condition of that city; and, if so, will he state their purport.


I am glad to say that the facts are generally as stated in the first two inquiries. White gloves have been presented to the County Court Judge on nine occasions within the past five years, but none have been presented to Judges of Assize during that period. The condition of Limerick city in regard to crime is satisfactory.


How about Belfast?
