HC Deb 27 March 1885 vol 296 c834

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland. Whether it is the custom of the police at Rosscrea to post themselves outside the house where Nationalist meetings are held; whether, on the 15th of February, a posse of police remained outside the hall of the Catholic Club, Rosscrea, and took down the names of persons who entered in order to attend a meeting convened for the purpose of establishing a branch of the Irish National League, and if a similar proceeding on the part of the police occurred on last Sunday; and, whether he will issue instructions restraining the police from continuing these proceedings?


This Question only appeared on the Paper yesterday, and the Report which I have called for has not yet reached me. Perhaps the hon. Member will be good enough to put the Question down again for Monday.
