HC Deb 14 February 1882 vol 266 c632

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether it is a fact that, on the 25th January last, two policemen arrested a farmer named Edward Wyer at his house at Killowen, in King's County, without producing a warrant, and that when asked for their authority or warrant they refused to produce any, and threatened to handcuff him unless he went quietly with them?


, in reply, said, that the policeman who effected this arrest ought to have presented his warrant at the time, and he had been warned to be more careful in future. Shortly after the arrest, however, Mr. Wyer was shown a copy of the warrant. It was not true that the police either handcuffed him or threatened to do so.
