HC Deb 10 April 1911 vol 24 c194W

asked the Chief Secretary whether, on Sunday 12th February, Constable Murray, of Drumree, informed Mr. Fox that Mr. Geraghty, ex-postmaster, made a charge against him of having fired at him; whether Teragathy had made similar charges previously against Mr. Fox; and is it open to individuals to make such charges with impunity, and, if not, will the police authorities assist Mr. Fox to vindicate his character by producing such letters as they hold containing those charges if Mr. Fox brings his accuser into court?


I am informed by the Inspector-General that Constable Murray did not at any time inform Mr. Fox that Thomas Geraghty, ex-postmaster, had made a charge against Mr. Fox of having fired at him. Thomas Teragathy has never before made a similar charge against Mr. Fox. The police cannot assist Mr. Fox in any way as there are no letters from Thomas Teragathy to produce.
