§ MR. FFRENCH (Wexford, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that a policeman, named Reardou, stationed at present at Gowran, County Kilkenny, holds a farm, situate in Lar-kinstown, near Wexford, which was taken by the policeman's mother-in-law, Mrs. Margaret Culleton, after the former 10 tenants had been evicted, and made over by deed on Constable Reardon: and whether policemen are allowed to hold farms from which the former tenants have been evicted?
MR. J. MORLEY
I understand that Mrs. Culleton holds the evicted farm referred to, but has not assigned it to Sergeant Reardon. No special Regulations exist in reference to the holding of evicted farms by members of the Constabulary. They are not permitted to hold farms (evicted or otherwise) in the counties in which they are serving, but there is no Regulation prohibiting them or their wives from holding land elsewhere.
