§ MR. JAMES O'CONNOR (Wicklow, W.)
On behalf of the hon. Member for East Wicklow, I beg to ask the Chief, Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland (1) how many constables of longer service than Constable Adams and without any unfavourable records are there on the promotion list in the county of Wicklow; (2) whether any special qualification exists in Adams' case to entitle him to promotion before his senior comrades; (3) whether it is contrary to the regulations for this constable's wife and family to occupy married quarters; (4) whether he has any unfavourable records; and, if so, how many, and (5) was he ever cautioned because of infringement of the rules of the service.
§ MR. WALTER LONG
The Answer to the third inquiry is in the negative. 956 The remaining inquiries deal with matters of discipline, as to which I must decline to give any information.
