§ MR. LANE (Cork Co., E.)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether the following statements, which appeared in The Times of last Friday, are true:—That a determined effort was made on the previous night to burn the house of Inspector Kerin at Youghal;that the crowd broke the windows of the Protestant Schools and the Methodist Church at Youghal;and that children of 12 to 11 years of ago were found drunk in the doorways, early on Thursday morning, in the streets of Youghal?
THE CHIEF SECRETARY Mr. A. J. BALFOUR) (Manchester, E.)
This Question is on the Paper without Notice, and as local inquiry is necessary it cannot be answered for a few days.
§ MR. CHANCE (Kilkenny, S.)
Would the right hon. Gentleman also discover the source from which these statements have been made?
