HC Deb 26 March 1885 vol 296 c657

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether Mr. Spunner, the agent of the Land Corporation, employed in Murroe, county Limerick, reported to the police, on the 21st December last, that he had been fired at; whether the police made inquiries concerning the report; and, if so, what was the result of their investigation; and, if it is true that this alleged firing has been included among the list of outrages supplied by the police in their Returns?


Mr. Spunner did report that he had been fired at; but the police authorities, on investigation, came to the conclusion that there were serious doubts about the case, and it has not been recorded as an outrage.
