HC Deb 28 March 1887 vol 312 c1607
MR. CONYBEARE (Cornwall, Camborne)

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether Mr. Ferriter, of Dingle, is still in prison on the charge of having called out "Harvey Duff" and "Stringer" at a public meeting in Dingle on the 16th January last; how long he has been in prison; whether, considering that on the hearing of the case no evidence whatever was adduced to prove that the peaceable conduct of the meeting was in any way disturbed by Mr. Ferriter, or the least indication of an attack upon cither the Government Reporter or the police was manifested, he will order his release; and, whether he will enable the hon. Member for the Camborne Division of Cornwall, who was present at the meeting in question from first to last, to give him information as to what actually took place?


Owing to the shortness of the Notice given, I have not been able to receive replies to the first three paragraphs of this Question. As regards the last paragraph, I shall be happy to receive any information which the hon. Member may be good enough to furnish me with on the subject.
