§ Postponed Resolutions 1 and 9 (Criminal Prosecutions, Ireland, and Office of the Commissioners of National Education, Ireland) [reported 1st June], further considered.
§ MR. O'SHAUGHNESSY
asked the Government to particularize how much of the amount (£49,000) had reference to the defence of the actions taken against the Marquess of Hartington, Colonel Lake, and the Dublin Police in the actions arising out of the Phoenix Park riots?
§ SIR MICHAEL HICKS-BEACH.
said, the actions were 13 in number, and it was impossible to ascertain from the Appropriation Accounts what particular sums had been applied to each. In the accounts for 1871–72, the sum of £89 3s. 8d. in those for 1872–3, the sum of £5,415 14s. 8d. appeared under this head, and in the accounts for 1873–4, there would appear a further sum of £3,671. As to the future sums to be paid he could not say.
§ Resolutions agreed to.
