§ Mr. JOHN ROCHE
asked the nature of the charges preferred against Sergeant Masterson, Royal Irish Constabulary, and other police constables, at an inquiry held at Gurteen, county Galway, in last January; how many witnesses were summoned, and how many attended?
§ Mr. BIRRELL:
I am informed by the constabulary authorities that Acting-Sergeant Masterson was charged at a disciplinary inquiry held by the County Inspector with a breach of good order and discipline. No summonses were issued for the attendance of witnesses, but seven witnesses were directed to attend and did attend.
