§ 85. Mr. J. P. FARRELL
asked the Chief Secretary whether he is aware that dissatisfaction exists amongst the police force in the Granard district over their treatment by the district inspector and head constable in charge; whether he will state the amount allowed him for horse upkeep and if any special allowance is made to this young cadet for his equestrian duties; and whether, in the event of a vacancy occurring in Ulster, he will transfer these two officers to another post?
§ Mr. RUSSELL
My right hon. Friend is not aware that there is any dissatisfaction amongst the Royal Irish Constabulary of the Granard district in regard to their treatment by the district inspector and head constable. The district inspector draws the ordinary forage allowance of £50 per annum for a horse, and £45 per annum for a man servant. No special allowance is made to him. He is a first-class district inspector of seventeen years' service. There is no intention to move either the district inspector or head constable from the district.
