§ MR. BIGGAR (Cavan, W.)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Is he aware that Peter Gillick, of Cordoagh, parish of Knockbride, and County of Cavan, was evicted on the 18th August last, and, in spite of his remonstrance to the barony constable, removed to the dunghill, where he died in less than half an hour; and, what action the Government proposes to take in the matter?
§ THE PARLIAMENTARY UNDER SECRETARY (Colonel KING-HARMAN) (Kent, Isle of Thanet)
(who replied) said: The District Inspector reports that Peter Gillick, while being evicted as a sub-tenant, became suddenly ill and died almost immediately after. He was not removed to a dunghill. The District Inspector further reports that the deceased received no unkind treatment, and that no blame attaches to any person in connection with his death.
§ COLONEL KING-HARMAN
The jury, at the Coroner's inquest, found that the deceased died of syncope of the head.
