HC Deb 06 April 1914 vol 60 cc1638-9W

asked the Chief Secretary whether the attention of the police authorities in Ireland has been drawn to a complaint brought. by Mr. Charles M'Fadden, Errigal Hotel, Falcarragh, respecting certain actions of Sergeant Farrell, R.I.C.; and whether they will give Mr. M'Fadden an opportunity of substantiating his charges by means of a public inquiry?


The Inspector-General informs me that his attention has been drawn to this matter. He has had Mr. M'Fadden's complaints thoroughly investigated and sees no reason to believe that Sergeant Farrell has in any way exceeded his duty. He sees no grounds for the inquiry suggested.
