§ 27. Mr. SHEEHAN
asked whether extra police are still engaged in patrol work in connection with the Collavokig, Macroom, school dispute; has any estimate been formed of the further length of time their services will be required; what is the weekly cost of maintenance, etc., of the ten police engaged daily on this patrol duty; upon whom will the charges for them fall; and will any portion thereof be borne by the ratepayers of the district?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The extra police are still engaged on this duty, and no estimate can be formed at present as to how much longer this protection will be necessary. The weekly cost and allowances of the ten police employed is approximately £13 10s., which is paid from the Constabulary Vote. No portion of the charge will be made on the ratepayers of the district.
