HC Deb 29 October 1918 vol 110 cc1300-1W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether he is aware that, owing to the rise in the cost of living, pensioners of the Royal Irish Constabulary, who, by reason of their age or infirmity of health are unable to get employment, are suffering hardship; will he inquire into the case of ex-Constable Mullooly, of 21, Barrack Street, Waterford, who, after thirty-one years in the force and with the King's Medal for meritorious service, is now a paralytic, and with his wife is endeavouring to subsist on 18s. a week; and will he say if any fund is in existence from which this man's case can be helped?


There is no fund out of which any assistance can be given to the ex-constable referred to, and there would, therefore, be no advantage in making the inquiry suggested in the question.
