52. Captain BENN
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the grant of public money under a recent Estimate towards the cost of the Special Constabulary in Northern Ireland was limited by any condition as to the use to which the constabulary should be put?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
The grant was voted towards the expenses of the Special Constabulary in Northern Ireland, which is regulation by the Special Constables Act, 1914, as applied by the Constabulary Act (Northern Ireland), 1922. No condi 1099 tions as to the use to which the force should be put are in my opinion necessary or desirable.
