§ MR. DANE (Fermanagh, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord 760 Lieutenant of Ireland whether the decrease in the number of cases of denunciation in Ireland to which he has referred is a decrease in the number of such cases which have actually occurred, or is a decrease in the number of such cases reported to him by the Constabulary?
MR. J. MORLEY
The Reports which have been made to me by the Divisional Commissioners show that there has been a decline in the number of these cases of denunciation generally. These Reports were based on information in possession of the police as to the cases which actually occurred.
