§ Mr. MITCHELL-THOMSON
asked the Chief Secretary whether, on the 12th and 13th July, extra police were drafted into Bangor; and, if so, whether he can state the number of such extra police; the 1002W districts from which they were drawn; by whom they were requisitioned; whether the local authority made application for them; and, if not, for what reason were they sent?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
An extra force of one officer and fifty men from the county of Meath were sent to Bangor on the 12th instant for duty on the 13th on the occasion of a meeting being held at that place. These police were sent at the request of the county inspector, who considered them necessary for the preservation of the peace.
