said, he wished to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, When the Report of the Commission on the Irish Constabulary will be laid upon the table of the House; and, whether the Government have decided upon making any change in the position of the Force, with a view to their increased efficiency?
§ MR. CHILDERS
Sir, the delay in laying on the table the Report of the Treasury Commission on the Irish Constabulary has arisen from some questions of pensions not having been finally settled. These have been now decided, and a supplementary Estimate will be proposed in a few days. I shall also ask leave to bring in a Bill on the subject, and I will tonight move for a copy of the Report. The Commission only inquired into the financial arrangements of the force, and I am not aware that the Lord Lieutenant contemplates any changes in other respects.
