HC Deb 01 August 1882 vol 273 c369

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If he would have any objection to lay upon the Table of the House a Return, giving the names and occupations of all persons arrested for or convicted of having taken part in nocturnal attacks between the months of June 1880 and June 1882, with a view of ascertaining how many, if any, Militia men have been implicated in them?


Sir, I have no objection to letting the hon. Member have this Return if he thinks fit to move for it; but I doubt if it would be of much practical use, and I also doubt if it can be prepared and presented before the Adjournment.
