HC Deb 27 May 1879 vol 246 c1356

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Whether he will have any objection to place upon the Table of the House the Reports from the constabulary authorities or resident magistrates of the county of Tyrone, if any such exist, for the years 1878 and 1879, which tend to show that certain districts in and about Holyhill are infected with ribbonism and infected with illicit distillation?


Sir, I am afraid I cannot lay these Papers upon the Table, as they are always treated as highly confidential, and their production would be attended with inconvenience.
