HC Deb 12 December 1912 vol 45 cc745-6

asked who made the Report in 1907 upon which the then Dublin Herald of Arms was removed from that position, and he and his companion required to resign their positions in the Army; whether that Report was oral or written; and by whose direction was the matter withdrawn from the jurisdiction of the Courts under the ordinary Criminal Law?


There was no such Report as that referred to. In October, 1907, it was decided, with the approval of the Crown, that the Office of Arms, Dublin Castle, should be reconstituted. This involved the retirement of Dublin Herald, who was notified accordingly, and who resigned office. I know nothing of the circumstances which led to this gentlemen resigning his position in the Militia.


I will raise this matter on the Motion for Adjournment to-morrow (Friday) evening.
