§ MR. CONYBEARE (Cornwall, Camborne)
I bog to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland by what authority and upon what evidence or suspicion of crime or criminal intent were three English ladies shadowed by the police in Tipperary on or about the 8th or 9th of July of last year?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
The Constabulary Authorities report that no English ladies were shadowed at Tipperary last July, as alleged in the question.
§ MR. CONYBEARE
I stated last week the names of the three ladies who were shadowed. Does the right hon. Gentleman presume to set the statement of the Royal Irish Constabulary against the word of these ladies?
