§ MR. JOHNSTON (Belfast, S.)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If he has made inquiry into the alleged moonlighting in Tyrone; if he is aware that Robert Cuddy, junior, was a boy of fourteen, and not an Orangeman; and, if the whole affair was anything more than a boy's frolic, the first person visited being the boy's own grandfather?
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY (Mr. JOHN MORLEY) (Newcastle-on-Tyne)
According to my information, Robert Cuddy, junior, is much older than he is represented to be in this Question. I do not know whether he is an Orangeman or not. The point is not material. The affair is not looked upon as a frolic, 917 and instructions have been given that Cuddy shall be prosecuted.
