HC Deb 23 July 1914 vol 65 cc653-4W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, how many men have left the Irish Constabulary Force since the 1st January last; and if he is now able to fix a definite date for the introduction of the promised Bill relating to that force.


The number of men who left the Royal Irish Constabulary during the period 1st January to 30th June last is as follows:—Pensioned, 122; Discharged on gratuity, 9; Resigned, 126; Dismissed or discharged for misconduct, 11. I hope to introduce the Bill at the earliest possible opportunity.
