HC Deb 11 March 1887 vol 312 c9
MR. SEXTON (Belfast, W.)

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland. Whether the Government have yet completed their consideration of the Report of Sir John Day and his colleagues on the Belfast Riots; how soon they will communicate to the House their proposals with respect to social order in Belfast; how soon the Report and Evidence are likely to be in the hands of Members; and, whether the Government have abandoned the expectation of receiving a Report from Mr. Wallace MacHardy?


(who replied) said: This subject is still under consideration. The Report and Evidence have been laid on the Table. The Government, though unable to account for Commander MacHardy's continued silence, are unwilling to come to the conclusion that it is not his intention to make his expected Report.
