§ SIR WILLIAM HART DYKE
asked Mr. Attorney General for Ireland, If his attention has been called to the position and case of Mr. F. Massy, of Suir Castle, Golden; whether it is true that, at the 31 request of the Government, Mr. Massy gave a piece of ground for the erection of a police hut; whether, in consequence of this loyal act, he has been Boycotted, and deserted by his domestic servants and farm labourers; and, whether the Government intend to take any steps for the relief of Mr. Massy, and to supply him with assistance to work his farm, now out of cultivation owing to his loyal aid offered to the Government?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. W. M. JOHNSON)
The Chief Secretary requests me to inform the right hon. Baronet that his attention has been given to the position and case of Mr. Massy, of Suir Castle; that it is the fact that Mr. Massy, at the request of the Government, gave a site for the erection of a police hut; and that, in consequence of this act in the interests of law and order by Mr. Massy, he has been "Boycotted," and has been deserted by his domestic servants and by his farm labourers. I have only to add that the Chief Secretary will see that anything in the power of the Government shall be done to alleviate Mr. Massy's position.
