HC Deb 01 March 1909 vol 1 c1253W

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he will ascertain from the county inspectors of constabulary of Galway, Roscommon, and Sligo whether a large proportion of the untenanted grass lands which have been parcelled out to new tenants in those counties has been sub-let by the latter as grazing farms, in many instances to the dis-possessed graziers; and will he state whether the practice is approved by the Government?


No, Sir. Enquiries of the kind suggested do not fall within the scope of police duty.
