§ THE LORD MAYOR OF DUBLIN (Mr. SEXTON) (Belfast, W.)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether he was aware that two constables had loft Ireland, bearing a warrant issued by Mr. Cecil Roche, R.M., for the arrest of the honourable Member for West Kerry; and, whether the Government will allow the attendance of the honourable Member upon the House during the, transaction of Irish Business in the present sittings to 459 be interrupted by the execution of the warrant?
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR) (Manchester, E.)
It is not, I believe, true that two constables have left Ireland bearing a warrant for the arrest of the hon. Member referred to. As I informed the hon. Member yesterday, he need be under no alarm that his Colleague will be prevented by arrest from taking part in the discussion of Irish Business next week.
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
Well, of course, if the hon. Gentleman was arrested he would be prevented from attending to Irish Business.
§ MR. SEXTON
The right hon. Gentleman does not mean that the hon. Member will be taken to Ireland and allowed to come back?
