HC Deb 04 June 1883 vol 279 c1650

gave Notice that he would ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether his attention had been called to a Circular issued from Dublin Castle, signed by Mr. Courtenay Boyle and Mr. H. Jephson, Private Secretaries to the Lord Lieutenant, calling on all members of the Civil Service to subscribe to a memorial to the late Mr. Thomas H. Burke; and whether, if the Circular was genuine, he would take steps to proceed against the gentlemen who signed it for intimidation, on the ground of their compelling people to do an act which they had a legal right to abstain from doing?


I hope and trust the hon. Member will not put that Question on the Paper.
