§ 12. Mr. MacCAW
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland if he could state at whose request were extra police quartered in Banbridge, county Down, Ireland, on the 10th August, 1912, or, if no requisition were made, by whose authority were extra police sent to that town on that occasion?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
From information received by the Constabulary Authorities it was deemed necessary to take these additional precautions in the interests of the public peace at Banbridge on the date referred to.
