§ MR. WILLIAM REDMOND (Clare, E.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether there is any reason for the extra police hut at Ballymaclune, county Clare, which is within a mile or two of Quin police 1249 barrack; and whether the district is not froe from all crime.
(Answered by Mr. Bryce.) I am informed by the police authorities that the police hut referred to, which is about two miles from Quinn police station, is deemed to be still needed for the peace of the district. It is happily the fact that the locality is now peaceful, but it is not considered certain that it would continue to be so if the police were withdrawn.
