§ MR. MAURICE HEALY (Cork)
asked Mr. Attorney General for Ireland, Whether, in December last, Sub-Inspector Milling, of Cork, was charged at the Cork Police Court with a serious assault on Dr. Tanner, M.P.; whether it was proved against him that he had ordered his men to disperse a legal and orderly meeting of the citizens of Cork, under 1758 circumstances of great brutality; whether the magistrates returned Mr. Milling for trial; and, whether the Government have since refused to prosecute the accused; and, if so, on what grounds?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. HOLMES) (Dublin University)
Sub-Inspector Milling was charged with an assault on Dr. Tanner, M.P., in December last. The case will be submitted to me in the usual way, for direction as to what further steps shall be taken in the matter, which is still pending.
§ MR. MAURICE HEALY
Do I understand the right hon. and learned Gentleman to say the case has not yet been submitted?
