§ MR. SEXTON
asked Mr. Solicitor General for Ireland, with reference to the repeated promises of the Government that they would proceed to discharge the costs of the defence in the Tubbercurry cases, and especially with regard to the last assurance in the House that this obligation would be immediately discharged, Whether it is true that the costs have not yet been paid; and, if the Government will fix a day beyond which they will guarantee that this legal debt shall not remain unsettled?
§ THE SOLICITOR GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. WALKER)
was understood to say that payment was issued to the solicitor of the prisoners on the 21st of March; and if he had not received it, it was his own fault.
