§ (4.0.) MR. JOHN O'CONNOR (Tipperary, S.)
I desire to ask the Chief Secretary for Ireland a question of which I have given him private notice. I wish to ask whether he has seen a report of the verdict in the case tried yesterday before Mr. Justice Holmes, that of "Haffernan v. Carter and .Tuohy," in which the jury found that the firing of the shot was not necessary for the defence of District Inspector Carter and the police? I would also ask whether the Law Officers of the Crown will now institute proceedings against the officer who ordered the shot to be fired, and against the policeman who fired it?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
I have not seen the report to which the hon. Member refers. Perhaps the hon. Member will be kind enough to give notice of a question to the Attorney General for Ireland to whose Department it more properly applies.
