Mr. J. JONES:

94.

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether he has any information as to the payment or nonpayment of debts incurred by the auxiliary division of the Royal Irish Constabulary with tradesmen in Ireland; whether he can state the exact amount appealed for by the commandant to the companies of the division in order that local tradesmen might be paid;; and whether, seeing that the companies were given to understand that future employment under the Government was dependent on these debts being discharged, and as a result companies and individuals who were not in debt have had to find money and suffer for other companies and individuals who were, he will inquire into the matter?
