HC Deb 02 May 1911 vol 25 cc211-2

asked what had been the cost of the police force in the county Leitrim during the years 1908, 1909, and 1910 respectively; what was the cost of the extra police during the said years; and whether it was intended to reduce the numbers of the force and stations?


The constabulary accounts are not kept by counties; it is therefore not possible to give the exact figures asked for. It has been estimated, however, that the average cost of the county Leitrim force for the three years mentioned is about £17,500 per annum. The charges made against the county for extra police were: 1908–9, £620; 1909–10, 2178; and 1910–11, nil. There is no intention at present to reduce the force in the county or the number of police stations.
