§ MR. M'CARTAN (Down, S.)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether he is aware that on Wednesday last, when the people were quietly and peaceably moving from the Dundalk Railway Station, where they had met the hon. Member for East Mayo (Mr. Dillon) and his friends, Mr. Cullen, Divisional Magistrate, ordered the dragoons and constabulary to stop the procession, and thereby caused considerable confusion and disorder during which several persons were thrown down and injured; and, whether Mr. Cullen had received instructions from Dublin Castle to act in this way?
§ THE SOLICITOR GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. MADDEN) (Dublin University)
(who replied) said: This Question being put down without Notice, I have not had time to obtain a specific Report as to the proceedings at the period of time to which the Question refers. The Police Reports now available deal with the disturbances which prevailed later in the day.
