§ MR. BIGGAR
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If his attention has been drawn to the remarks of Mr. Waters, County Court Judge at Manorhamilton, county Leitrim, in January last, in which he congratulated the Grand Jury on the peaceable state of the district; and if, under the circumstances, there is any justification for the further imprisonment of the "suspects" belonging to that district?
§ MR. TOTTENHAM
I should like to ask another Question. Supposing the remarks had been made, does the right hon. Gentleman think, from his knowledge of the state of the country, that they were justified by the facts?
§ MR. W. E. FORSTER
I can only say that I have not seen these remarks. I have looked for them, but have not been able to find them. I am sorry to state that the condition of County Leitrim, as regards agrarian outrage and intimidation, is not one which will enable us to do what the hon. Member (Mr. Biggar) suggests.
