HC Deb 30 July 1891 vol 356 cc779-80
MR. CRILLY (Mayo, N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord. Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that on Sunday, the 12th of July, Mr. D. Dunn, P.L.G., of Rostrevor, County Down, accompanied by another ratepayer of the same place, waited on Mr. Horner, J.P., to swear an information that if an Orange procession was permitted to pass through the village of Rostrevor on Monday, the 13th of July, a breach of the peace would most certainly follow, and that Mr. Horner, though bound as a Magistrate to receive this information, nevertheless refused, and declared his intention of leading the Orange procession in person; whether the information was subsequently sworn before Mr. Charles Leslie, J. P., and notice served on the police that the information had been laid; is he aware that these facts having been brought to the knowledge of Mr. Home, he insisted on the procession passing through Rostrevor when he headed it himself, and that a disturbance actually took place as anticipated, and an Orangeman was sent for trial on a serious charge arising there-from; and, if the facts of the case be as stated, whether the Lord Chancellor proposes to take notice of Mr. Horner's conduct?


As I have not yet received the information, I must ask the hon. Member to defer the question.


I will put it down for to-morrow.
