§ MR. CHANCE (Kilkenny, S.)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether the shorthand report obtained by the Crown of the trial of Messieurs Dillon, O'Brien, and others, at the last Dublin Commission, will be paid for out of public funds; and, whether he has any objection to have such report, or portion thereof, printed and circulated for the information of Members of this House?
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY (Sir MICHAEL HICKS-BEACH) (Bristol, W.)
As in former cases of the kind, the reports have been prepared for the use of the Government, and it is not intended to circulate the entire or any portion thereof.
§ MR. T. M. HEALY (Longford, N.)
pointed out that copies of the reports of the case of the "Queen v. Parnell" had been circulated. He thought there was one in the Library of the House of Commons, and there was one in the Library of the King's Inns. He wished to know, would the same facilities for publicity be given for the report of the case of the "Queen v. Dillon?"
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND
said, the same rule would be adopted with regard to this case as was adopted in the case of the "Queen v. Parnell."
