HC Deb 07 August 1914 vol 65 cc2159-60W

asked the Chief Secretary whether he is aware that John Cronin, of the Dublin Metropolitan Police, was, while on duty on 4th May, 1910, on the Great Northern Railway at Fairview, knocked down by a train, and that his injuries were serious and necessitated the amputation of his right leg; whether, in accordance with the circular issued to him when joining the Dublin Metropolitan Police Force, he is entitled to full pay, having received the injuries when on duty; whether he was awarded a pension of £21; whether his case will be reconsidered and compensation allowed to him in accordance with the circular referred to; and whether he will be permitted to examine the reports made relative to his case?


I would refer the hon. Member to the replies given to the questions asked on this subject on the 3rd and 6th April, 1911. With regard to the last paragraph of the question, it would be contrary to practice to permit official documents to be inspected as suggested.
