§ MR. LONSDALE
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland what are the existing instructions to the police regarding their attendance at railway stations in Ireland; whether these instructions are the same as those issued to the force in 1905; if not, in what respect do they differ; and has the Inspector-General any reason to believe that a further modification of the instructions is at present called for.
§ MR. CHERRY
The existing regulations prohibit the Royal Irish Constabulary from attending regularly at railway stations without the special authority of the Inspector-General, but the police are not prohibited from attending when their attendance is required in the discharge of police duty. These regulations were issued in 1904, and have not since been changed. The Inspector-General is not aware of any reason for modifying the existing instructions, which have worked satisfactorily.
