HC Deb 17 December 1906 vol 167 c989

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether there is any reason for retaining the police hut at Glanquin, county Clare, and if he can state the length of service of Sergeant John Miller of the Royal Irish Constabulary; whether he is about to retire on pension; whether, recently in the neighbourhood of Glanquin, a complaint was made that the police kept a man who had been arrested on the road all night; and whether inquiries will be made into these matters.

(Answered by Mr. Bryce.) The Inspector-General of the Royal Irish Constabulary informs me that he considers it to be still necessary to retain the hut at Glanquin, for the reasons stated in my reply to the hon. Member's Question of 30th April.†Sergeant Miller, who is in charge of the hut, has had twenty-one years' service, and is about to retire on pension upon the ground of ill-health. I am informed that there is no foundation for the suggestion in the latter part of the Question, and that no complaint whatever has been made to that effect.
