HC Deb 25 May 1905 vol 146 cc1374-5
MR. NANNETTI (Dublin, College Green)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether, as A result of his investigation into the accounts of the late staff officer of the Royal Irish Constabulary Department, Dublin Castle, he has directed that the sum of £433 10s. 4d. be refunded to the widow of the said staff officer, the said sum having been deducted from an amount due on foot of an insurance policy on her late husband's life by direction of the Chief Crown Solicitor.

(Answered by Mr. Walter Long.) The reply is in the negative. Legal proceedings for the recovery of the sum misappropriated were instituted against the widow, and as a result she paid the sum in question out of a policy of insurance on the life of the deceased.
