HC Deb 10 June 1858 vol 150 c1850

said, he would beg to ask the Attorney General for Ireland whether the Government are going to take any more proceedings against the Rev. Mr. Conway and the Rev. Mr. Ryan?


said, he had written to the Crown Solicitor to know whether there was any prospect of obtaining additional evidence against the Rev. Mr. Ryan and the Rev. Mr. Conway, and in answer the Crown Solicitor stated that he neither had any additional evidence nor did he expect it, as every possible exertion had been used to search out all the evidence which could be obtained before the trial. Considering that the object of the prosecution, that the law against intimidation should be expounded, had been attained, and that a subsequent election had taken place in Mayo without any interference on the part of the priests, he did not intend to take any further steps in the matter.
