HC Deb 30 March 1882 vol 268 c286

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, What amount has been levied by the Grand Juries at last Winter and Spring Assizes in Limerick and Tipperary counties for arson and malicious injuries; and what number of persons have been brought to trial or arrested on reasonable suspicion of having caused the same?


, in reply, said, "levied" was not the correct expression, because the Grand Juries at present did not levy these sums. The amounts in which the Grand Juries at the Winter and Spring Assizes had condemned the counties of Limerick and Tipperary were £3,238 and £2,013, respectively. At Limerick three persons, and at Tipperary two persons, were arrested on suspicion of having committed the crimes of arson and malicious injury to property. In neither case were any brought to trial.
