§ MR. WILLIAM REDMOND
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to the conflict between the police and people at Bodyke last week, when the sheriff seized some cattle on the estate of Colonel O'Callaghan; whether he can state how many police were engaged upon the occasion, and whether it is true they charged the people with clubbed guns; whether he is aware that the people of Bodyke find great difficulty in paying the judicial rents; and whether, to avoid further disturbance in this locality, the Government will introduce a short Bill for the revision of judicial rents in Ireland?
MR. J. MORLEY
I have called for a Report in reference to this question, and not having received a reply must ask the hon. Gentleman to defer it for a couple of days.
§ MR. MACARTNEY
As to paragraph 3, is it not a fact that a number of the people when their cattle were seized came in and paid their rents?
