§ MR. THEOBALD (Essex, Romford)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland what steps have been taken by the Lord Chancellor in the case of Mr. John Clune, who was appointed a Magistrate for Limerick by the present Government, in consequence of his having presided at a meeting at 773 which a so-called landgrabber was denounced, and boycotting resolutions were passed?
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. J. MORLEY,) Newcastle-upon-Tyne
The statement as to Mr. Clune only appeared in a newspaper report. I understand from the Lord Chancellor that he is taking steps to obtain evidence as to the real facts, and when he has ascertained them he will take such action as the case requires.
