HC Deb 25 June 1889 vol 337 cc713-4
MR. GILL (Louth, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether, eight weeks after his imprisonment began, a fresh prosecution, under the Criminal Law and Procedure (Ireland) Act, has been instituted against Dr. Tanner, M.P.; and, whether, although the case had been fixed for hearing for 4th July, the Crown seek an adjournment till three weeks later, in order that the honourable Member may complete his present sentence, and the possibility of a concurrent sentence be thus obviated?


The Notice of the question is insufficient. A Report has not yet been received. It has been called for by wire this morning.

Forward to
