HC Deb 22 July 1909 vol 8 cc736-7W

asked the Chief Secretary whether the £620 collected by the Inspector-General of the Royal Irish Constabulary from his subordinates to commemorate the memory of Constable Goldrick has yet been allocated; what was the date of the unofficial circular asking for subscriptions; what is the cause of the delay; and in whose custody the capital remains?


A vote has been taken to ascertain the wishes of the subscribers of all ranks to the Goldrick Memorial Fund of the Royal Irish Constabulary, which is purely unofficial, and the money will be allocated in accordance with the desire of the majority of the subscribers. This voting was the cause of the delay in allocating the money, which is in the custody of the hon. secretary to the committee and is lodged in the Bank of Ireland. The date of the unofficial circular referred to in the question was 11th February, 1909.
