HC Deb 16 June 1893 vol 13 cc1181-2
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 which a so-called landgrabber was denounced and boycotting resolutions were passed?


The Lord Chancellor for Ireland informs me that the matter is still the subject of investigation. It is perfectly reasonable that time should be given to the Magistrate to make his explanation.


I will repeat the question next Tuesday.
