HC Deb 30 May 1906 vol 158 c423

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the superintendent of the Dublin Metropolitan Police Force who examines candidates for promotion is the same superintendent who issued the memorandum to certain inspectors urging them to make cases against licensed traders; and, if so, can he say what are the qualifications of this officer for conducting these examinations.


I am informed by the Chief Commissioner that when examinations for promotion take place a board, comprising two superintendents, conducts that part of it which consists of police duties and drill, and reports the result to the Chief Commissioner. The superintendent referred to in the Question takes his turn in this duty, and is fully qualified to do so.
