HC Deb 20 June 1890 vol 345 c1500
DR. KENNY (Cork, S.)

I' beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that last year, when the two honourable Members for Clare (Mr. Cox and Mr. Jordan) attended at Ennis in response to a summons sent to them by the Registrar of the Clare Infirmary, of which institution they are Governors, to take part in the election of a physician to the infirmary, they were shadowed by the police during their entire stay in Ennis, and that during the entire time the election above mentioned was proceeding, a police guard was stationed in the immediate vicinity of the infirmary; and whether ho can state by whose direction the police acted in the manner above described?


I have not had sufficient notice of the question, and must ask the hon. Member to defer it.
