HC Deb 09 March 1911 vol 22 c1388

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether he is aware that the police in the district of Turloughmore, Tuam, county Galway, for the past twelve months have subjected respectable people in the district to annoyance; have they received instructions, and, if so, from whom, to visit systematically Mr. Patrick Murray, D.C., and interrogate him as to his whereabouts during the day, cross-examine his family as to the people visiting his licensed premises, and insist upon examining his gun every time they visit his house; and will he explain whether instructions to the same effect have been issued over the county generally?


I am not aware that the police in the district referred to have subjected respectable people to annoyance, and no instructions of the nature indicated in the question have been given.
