§ MR. JUSTIN M'CARTHY
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether he will recommend the release from prison of Eliza Lennon, convicted at the Longford Quarter Sessions of 27th June last on a charge of having forcibly re-entered a house from which she had been evicted, seeing that three other persons convicted of the same accusation at the same time and con- 616 demned to the same period of imprisonment, six months, have since been released, and that the house which she re-entered has been given up?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. Law)
Sir, I have no doubt the Lord Lieutenant would be prepared to consider favourably any Memorial on behalf of this woman, provided that she submits to the authority of the law; but until she does so, as already pointed out by my right hon. Friend the Chief Secretary for Ireland, he cannot entertain any application on her behalf.
