HC Deb 04 April 1879 vol 245 c365

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Whether, considering the tranquil condition of the county of Kerry, and its freedom from crime, he is prepared to recommend that the said county, the whole of which has been subject to proclamation under the provisions of the Peace Preservation Acts from 15th February 1867 to the present time, should be declared exempt from the operation of the said Acts?


Sir, the question of the various proclamations under the Peace Preservation Acts is now engaging the attention of the Government, and the case of the county of Kerry will be fully considered with the rest.
