§ MR. J. P. FARRELL
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland by how many men the police force of county Longford has been reduced since 1st April, 1899; whether the county is now contributing anything 313 for extra police over and above the normal number of former years; how many police barracks have been closed; and whether, in these cases, it is proposed to dispose of the barracks or keep them for further contingencies.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
There has been no reduction. There is no extra force in the county at present, consequently no local contribution is payable. One barrack was closed and surrendered to the owner of the premises.
