asked the Chief Secretary what was the result of the court-martial on two temporary cadets, auxiliary division, who were to be tried for holding up the superintendent of the Dublin Fire "Brigade (Balls Bridge) by force as a reprisal for the superintendent identifying certain cadets on parade a few days previously?

If the hon. Member will refer to a reply which I gave to a similar question on the 14th instant he will find that the allegation that the superintendent and other members of the fire brigade were threatened with violence on the 15th January was not substantiated in the official inquiry held into the matter. No cadets, therefore, are awaiting trial by court-martial on this charge.
