§ MR. LABOUCHERE (Northampton)
asked, Whether the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland could give the House the exact terms of the warrant upon which the hon. Member for North-East Cork (Mr. W. O'Brien) had been arrested; also, whether warrants had been issued against other persons, or arrests made, for taking part in the alleged illegal meeting on the 8th of this month in a proclaimed district; and, if so, against whom?
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR) (Manchester, E.)
I am 1498 afraid I have not got the warrant here, as I did not receive Notice; but I gave the substance of it to the House yesterday. If my memory serves me aright, the hon. Member was arrested for inciting to, and taking part in, an unlawful assembly. I think that is accurate.
