§ MR. LENG (Dundee)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether any charge of boycotting or intimidation has been made against the Rev. David Macrae, a minister of religion at Dundee, who is at present travelling in Ireland for the benefit of his health; and on what grounds he was recently "shadowed" by the police while travelling from Newbridge to Clongorey?
§ MR. CAREW (Kildare)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, on the same subject, whether the Rev. Mr. Macrae, of Dundee, and his wife, when visiting Clongorey on Thursday last, were shadowed by a policeman named Keating, who followed them from point to point on a bicycle, going everywhere the visitors went to; and whether he cm say why they were so shadowed?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
There is no charge of boycotting or intimidation against the rev. gentleman, and not the slightest foundation that he was shadowed. The policeman referred to was engaged on a wholly different matter.
