§ MR. THEOBALD (Essex, Romford)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary for Ireland a Question of which I have given him private notice—namely, whether Father Byrne has issued a summons against Lieutenant Geoghegan for creating a disturbance in his church; and on what ground he has done so, when the disturbance was created by Father Byrne, who incited the soldiers to mutinous conduct?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
The Question was not put into my hands until I came into the House, and I have had no information to enable me to answer it. If 1509 the hon. Member will put the Question on the paper I will endeavour to answer that part of it which does not deal with any question which is before the Courts.
