§ MR. SEXTON
asked Mr. Solicitor General for Ireland, Whether, in the cases of the Tubbercurry prisoners, arrested 31st March 1884, and discharged from custody on 11th November 1884, on entry of nolle prosequi by the Crown, the expenses of the accused and witnesses for the defence have not yet been paid; what has been done in the matter since, as announced in the House some months ago, it was taken out of the bands of the Crown Solicitor for Sligo, and referred for attention to the Crown and Treasury Solicitor for Ireland; and, will these costs be now discharged?
§ THE SOLICITOR GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. WALKER)
AS this Question only appeared to-day, I have not had time to ascertain whether the costs have been paid or taxed. I shall inquire into the matter when I go to Dublin.
