§ MR. LEWIS
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether he will, on the part of the Government, lay upon the Table at an early day a Return of the number of cases in which, during the last two years 1884 and 1885, the Military Forces of the Crown have been employed in carrying out evictions of tenants of land or land and houses, distinguishing each county and province in Ireland?
§ MR. DILLON
asked, if the right hon. Gentleman would also include in the Return the number of armed police who had been employed on similar duty?
THE CHIEF SECRETARY (Mr. JOHN MORLEY),
in reply, said, if the Return asked for were moved in the ordinary way, there would be no objection on the part of the Government to granting it. When that Return was moved for, then the hon. Member for East Mayo could propose that it should include the number of armed police.
