HC Deb 12 August 1890 vol 348 cc714-5
MR. SEXTON (Belfast), W

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he has received a communication from the Catholic Bishop of Down and Connor, with regard to the attack on a number of Catholics in Belfast on Wednesday last; and what measures have been adopted by the police with a view to the vindication of justice? Perhaps the right hon. Gentleman at the same time can answer Question 39.


I am not in a position to add to the reply I have already given to the second question. With regard to the other question, I have received a telegram from the Catholic Bishop of Down and Connor, and I have also received a communication from clergymen—priests, I think—giving an account of the transaction and certain other information. We are now awaiting other details.
