Can the Attorney-General for Ireland give the House any information as to the murder in Dublin of Detective-Sergeant Dalton?
§ Mr. HENRY
Detective-Sergeant Dalton was 26 years of age. He had six years' service in the Dublin Metropolitan Police and was recently transferred to the G Division. While proceeding on duty to Broadstone Station shortly before one o'clock yesterday afternoon he was 407 fired at by four men, armed with revolvers, sustaining five or six wounds. He was removed to the Mater Misericordiæ Hospital and died there in two hours.
§ Lord R. CECIL
Is it true, as stated in the papers, that another policeman was with him, and if so, why did not that policeman return the fire of the assailants?
Is it not quite certain that a number of persons were there? A woman was hit in the leg, and the bullet could not have gone round a corner.
