HL Deb 14 February 1845 vol 77 c453
The Marquess of Normanby

begged to give notice of his intention to move at some future day between the present time and Easter for a Return of the name of the individual appointed to the post of Deputy Inspector of the Constabulary Force in Ireland. He did not in making this Motion mean to cast any invidious reflection upon the gentleman who had been nominated to the post, as he was no doubt an efficient and trustworthy person; but his only wish was to ascertain whether the Irish Government had proceeded in making this appointment upon the principle which he had established when he had the honour of being Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, namely, of leaving the promotion in the constabulary force of that kingdom at the disposition of the Lord Lieutenant, upon the recommendation of the Inspector General.

House adjourned.
