§ MR. REDMOND
asked, If it is a fact that a girl named Bourke, twelve years of age, was assaulted recently in the village of Cappamore, county Limerick, by a sub-constable, who, because she was singing "Harvey Duff," drew his bayonet and inflicted a wound upon her, fracturing her skull and endangering her life; and, whether the child is still in a precarious state, and what steps he will take in the matter?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. W. M. JOHNSON)
, in reply, said, that this Question was altogether one of facts, and as he was not acquainted with, them, he would ask the hon. Member to postpone his Question until the Chief Secretary was in his place.
