HC Deb 03 February 1893 vol 8 c403
MR. DARLING (Deptford)

I wish to ask the Chief Secretary for Ireland a question of which I have given him private notice—namely, whether, having regard to the unanimous judgment delivered yesterday be the Court of Queen's Bench in Ireland in the case of "the Attorney Generalv. Kissane," he will withdraw the Circular dated Dublin Castle, December 7 last, and direct the police authorities in Ireland to act in accordance with the law of the land, as laid down by the Court of Queen's Bench, until that decision may have been reversed on appeal?


I can only say, in answer to the hon. and learned Gentleman, that the decision will of course command the immediate attention of the Irish Government, and whatever direction it may seem necessary in conformity with that decision to give to the police authorities will be given.
