§ MR. W. A. MACDONALD (Queen's Co., Ossory)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether he can state specifically the reasons why counties Louth, Meath, Wicklow, and Dublin have been proclaimed under Clauses B and C of sub-section 3 of section 2 of the Criminal Law Amendment (Ireland) Act; and, whether any agrarian offences have been reported to the Constabulary in the counties of Louth, Meath, Wicklow, or Dublin during the last nine months?
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR) (Manchester, E.)
I do not think, Sir, that I can add anything to the answer I gave to a similar Question to-day and to one yesterday upon this point.
§ MR. SEXTON (Belfast, W.)
Can the right hon. Gentleman say when we shall have in our hands the official documents promised yesterday, showing the precise scope and extent of the various Proclamations?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
I do not know. These things take some time to prepare and print; but I will hurry it on as fast as I can.
