§ MR. DELANY (Queen's County, Ossory)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the solicitor acting on behalf of Edward Carroll has stated that he replied to all the letters received from Constable Cryan or his solicitor; and, under the circumstances, whether he will see that Constable Cryan is not allowed to evade his legal liability and that he be called upon to pay his part of the damages obtained against him in the High Court for an assault upon Edward Carroll on March 17th, 1905.
As I imformed the hon. Member on March 1st,† Constable Cryan wrote to the plaintiffs solicitor offering† See (4) Debates, clii., 1270.1069 to pay his share, namely, £50, of the damages by instalments, but the offer was refused. Having regard to the constable's circumstances, the offer appears to the Inspector-General to be a reasonable one. The constable does not appear to be seeking to evade his legal liability.
