HC Deb 19 April 1910 vol 16 c1887

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether his attention has been directed to a resolution passed by the people of Roevagh, county Galway, pointing out that perfect peace and good order reigned in the district since the dispute which led to the disturbance in the parish was settled by the Lord Bishop of the diocese; whether a considerable force of police are still maintained in the district at the ratepayers' cost; and whether, having regard to the interests of social order and domestic peace, he will direct that the number of policemen in the district shall be reduced to the normal strength?


I have seen the resolution referred to. The question of reducing the extra force in the district has been under consideration, and the police authorities hope that a reduction may be possible.
