§ MR. KIMBER (Wandsworth)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether the perpetrators of the 10 several outrages in County Clare, reported in the Dublin Daily Express of 30th August, six being by fire-arms discharged into dwelling-houses, one an attempt to blow up a bridge by dynamite, one the savage beating of three labourers, one a notice threatening death, and one of "Boycotting," have been traced and brought to justice, and what are the facts of the cases as ascertained; and, whether Her Majesty's subjects travelling in those districts may expect to travel safely?
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR) () Manchester, E.
The outrages were correctly reported in The Daily Express. I am not aware how many persons have been made amenable—very few, I am afraid, in proportion to the number of outrages. I should imagine that those of Her Majesty's subjects who are in danger are the residents in the county, and not stray travellers through it.
