HC Deb 07 May 1883 vol 279 c24

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If it is true that an action was recently brought against Mr. James Francis Lennox M'Farlane, J. P. Morien, Dundrum, county Dublin, before Chief Baron Palles, for blowing up a portion of his neighbour's premises with dynamite; whether a verdict for £100 was found against him; whether he settled the action by going through the Bankruptcy Court and has never paid the costs; and, whether he will continue this gentleman in the Commission of the Peace?


The facts of this case are not before me; but I am aware that they are at present under the consideration of the Lord Chancellor.
