§ MR. BARRY
asked Mr. Attorney General for Ireland, If it is true that nine persons in the neighbourhood of Hook, county Wexford, were arrested under the Lord Lieutenant's warrant yesterday; that several of the persons 26 arrested are mere boys, under seventeen years of age; and upon what grounds were the arrests made?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. W. M. JOHNSON)
Yes; these persons have been arrested in the district referred to, on the grounds of reasonable suspicion of intimidation. None of them are under 17 years of age. One is 22, two are 19, and the rest are upwards of 30 years of age.
