HC Deb 03 August 1882 vol 273 cc603-4

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, with reference to the composition of the Bench at Listowel, Whether the application for the presence of the Cork and Clare resident magistrates at the trial of Mr. T. Harrington and others was made after or before the local justices had admitted the accused to bail on the 3rd July, or referred in any way to their adjudication on that day; and, whether he would have any objection to lay upon the Table a Copy of the application?


The application for the presence of the two Resident Magistrates was made after the accused had been admitted to bail; but I cannot lay the application on the Table, or give the hon. Member any further information regarding it.
