§ MR. MAHONY (Meath, N.)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether he will lay upon the Table of the House a copy of the requisition for police forwarded by the Sheriff before the Glenbeigh evictions, also a copy of the 10 days' notice giving the nature of the proceedings and the names of the tenants to be proceeded against?
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY (Sir MICHAEL HICKS-BEACH) (Bristol, W.)
In this case the Sheriff had a personal interview with the Divisional Magistrate, and all the arrangements were then made as regards his protection during the eviction. I have no objection to lay on the Table a copy of the Sheriff's written requisition and notice, which are contained in one document.
§ MR. E. HARRINGTON (Kerry, W.)
Would the right hon. Baronet say whether it is true that in this case of serious eviction neither Sheriff nor Divisional Magistrate was present at all?
